Gala

Thank you for supporting our students, staff, and community at this year's Gala!


2018 ISDenver Gala logo

Friday, April 13, 2018

Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

EXDO Event Center

1399 35th St, Denver, CO

Get out your glitter, put on your disco dancing shoes and join us for a throwback ball to the era that started it all. Studio 54: The 2018 ISDisco Fundraising Gala is almost here!

The Gala 411!

Who's invited?

Calling all Dancing Queens & Groovy Guys: all parents, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend!

Why should I come?

How Deep in Your Love for ISDenver? Our annual gala is ISDenver’s premier fundraising event which supports our outstanding students, faculty and programs.

By participating in Gala, what do I support?

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.

What about my kids? Can I get a babysitting deal?

YES! Still looking for a babysitter for Gala night? Use Nanno, the new, on-demand childcare platform, to book childcare for the night of the Gala and get 20% off ($16/hour for up to 2 kids or $20/hour for up to 4 kids). If you’re not already a member of Nanno, sign up (for FREE) using this invitation code.

To use your 20% discount, use coupon code ISDGALA.

How do I purchase 'instant buy' items or participate in the raffle?

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.

What is the format for the evening?

Cocktails (5:30 to 7:00 p.m.) with a focus on fun: entertainment, open bar, apps, door prizes

Seated Dinner with concurrent program (7:30 p.m.). Program will include: faculty, staff, and sponsor recognition; live auction, video premier, paddle raise; raffle drawing.

After Party akaDisco Inferno (9:00 to 11:30 p.m.), which includes dessert, DJ, dancing, and a celebratory surprise for all to enjoy!

Studio 54 theme? What should I wear?

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.

What is the parking situation?

EXDO has one parking lot behind the building with room for approximately 100 vehicles; aside from this, parking is limited in surrounding neighborhood. We recommend all of our guests consider using Lyft, Uber, or the LightRail for the event.

What hotels are nearby? Are there deals available?
