Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Gala? The International School's annual Auction Gala is a night out - the evening at The Sentinel Hotel includes a cocktail hour, plated dinner and social hour at the end of the evening.  It is also TIS's BIGGEST fundraising event; last year we raised nearly $240,000 for our students and teachers!

How do you raise money? There are many ways to contribute to the Gala's fundraising efforts.  A silent and live auction, special appeal paddle raise, wine grab, party sign-up, heads or tails and golden ticket raffle all help raise critical funds for our students and teachers. 

Do I have to dress up?  While most guests enjoy dressing formally for the Gala, there is no official dress code.
