We are down to the last couple weeks before the event! We’re at about 100 attendees right now, and there’s definitely room for more!

Tomorrow, May 6, was originally the last day for the $125 ticket price before it goes up to $150. In the hopes of getting in one last push at the “early-bird” price, we have extended that offer through this coming weekend. So as long as you make your purchase before the start of the business day on Monday, May 9 you will still qualify for the $125 price.

Tickets are available for purchase at

Wine Auction


“Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words.” -Plautus
The wine table is filling up, but there is still room for more! We’re currently at about 60 bottles, we would love to get that number closer to 100.

Whites, Reds, Roses, Sparklings, corks, screw tops…we love it all!

All Gala proceeds will help Intercultural cover operating expenses that are not fully covered by tuition. If you, your employer, or your business requires documentation for your tax deductible donation, our Business Manager, Kimberly Norwood will be glad to supply any necessary documentation or receipts.

We certainly appreciate your thoughtful consideration of our request and hope you will be able to assist in some way. We also hope that we will see you at the event and enjoy an evening with the entire Intercultural community.
