By participating in the gala, you have the opportunity to provide direct support to students and faculty. Three new priorities were identified this year:
- Faculty Investment Fund, helping ISDenver attract and retain the very best faculty.
- Financial Assistance, supporting ISDenver’s commitment to inclusivity and diversity.
- ISDenver Priorities, the most flexible support possible which can be used at the discretion of the School leadership.
All revenue will come from raffle ticket sales, live auction, and paddle raise (there will be no silent auction this year.) Live auction will include all-new packages in addition to two reserved parking spaces at the Welcome Center front door; other parking opportunities will be available as well.

In lieu of a silent auction this year, look forward to our 'instant buy' options, as well as fantastic prizes at the door and in our raffle - plus the live auction, of course!To 'instant buy' items such as our Teacher Treasures, we use the Gesture platform, which is the same site guests use to buy tickets to the event. Once you have created an account in Gesture/purchased your event tickets, it is very easy to purchase any of our 'instant buy' options.
To participate in the raffle, you will need to buy tickets at the Welcome Center the week prior to the event, or upon arrival at the Gala.
Cocktails (5:30 to 7:00 p.m.) with a focus on fun: entertainment, open bar, apps, door prizes

After Party aka … Disco Inferno (9:00 to 11:30 p.m.), which includes dessert, DJ, dancing, and a celebratory surprise for all to enjoy!
As with year’s past, costumes are not required, but you should know that they are very popular! “Studio 54” attire can mean anything with glitz and glitter, along with ‘70’s style items such as bell bottoms, nehru jackets, wide collared shirts, patterned gowns & dresses, pantsuits, tie-dye, and of course, Boogie Shoes.
Not into costumes? Not a Tragedy! Cocktail attire is always appropriate.
