Dear SLS Families,

On May 8, 2020, the St. Louis School Committee (SAC) will host GALA at the Country Club of Rochester to support St. Louis School! GALA stands for Gathering Assets for Learning Advancement. Proceeds from GALA are used to support learning in the classroom with field trips, special events at school, teacher supplies, special technology such as school smart boards, etc.

GALA is St. Louis School’s largest fundraising event and is held every other year. In order to raise funds at GALA we rely on the generosity of our school family, parish and community to help us provide exciting items for the live and silent auctions to be held that evening.

The GALA committee is asking for your help in collecting items for the auctions. Below are some ideas/suggestions. Thank you for your consideration in helping with the GALA auctions!

• Travel points used for hotel or airfare gift cards

• Entertainment memorabilia

• Tickets to sporting events – ex: Buffalo Bills, Yankees, etc.

• Limo trips

• Time share weeks

• Discounts for your specific professional services

• Golf packages – rounds at local country clubs

• Gift packages

• Concerts and/or movie tickets

• Spa packages

You can access the donor form HERE.

If your child takes lessons or practices with an instructor or at a facility, would you be willing to ask for a donation of services for GALA? If so, we can provide a donor form and a community letter to them. Your tax-deductible donation helps to secure the success of our fundraiser and supports the academic, physical, social and spiritual development of our St. Louis students.

Sincerely,

The SLS SAC Committee:
