Gala Update!
April 15, 2016

The 9th Annual Spring Gala – The Black and Red Ball

Here’s some fun Gala facts:

Days to go: 36
Attendees so far: 84
Auction Items so far: 29
Wine Bottles so far: 41

So with a little over a month to go, we are narrowing in on our goals, but there is still time to contribute.

Regarding the Silent Auction, we would like to have all donation forms completed and submitted no later than Friday, May 13 so we can begin assembling and printing the program book. You can deliver the actual items to either campus as late as Thursday, May 19.

As you know, next week is Spring Break (4/18-4/22), but we will have someone at the Reception Desk at the Chicago Campus from 8am-4pm each day if you want to drop any items off during that time. Rob McLean will also be responding to e-mails, so feel free to contact him at Gala tickets are available for purchase at

A big thanks to all who have participated so far. Have a great weekend, and a great Spring Break!

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.
