City Garden’s Annual Gala is our largest fundraising event each year. In 2017, Gala grossed over $204,000 towards our operations and programs. Gala is an elegant night with dinner, entertainment, and silent and live auctions, all benefiting City Garden students.

We are already preparing for our 7th Annual Gala on March 3, 2018 at The Palladium Saint Louis. We invite you to donate silent or live auction items, using our Gala Auction Solicitation Letter and Donation Form 2018.
