OLSH parents, alumni, faculty and staff, board members, alumni parents, and friends – it’s a fun night out and a chance to meet others who love and support OLSH, like you!
What are the auctions like?
The Gala offers a Live Auction, typically featuring around 8 prizes ranging from jewelry to art to trips. The Live Auction is a highlight of the night, even for those not bidding, as professional auctioneers lead bidding wars between guests. Often tables or groups of friends go in together on prizes, each chipping in to share an experience together. The Silent Auction features around 75 prizes with starting bids anywhere from $40 - $250. Prizes include experience packages, jewelry, OLSH-themed items, sports memorabilia, and more. The Ticket Auction allows guests to purchase tickets ($25 for a sheet) to drop in bags for a chance to win a variety of prizes, like theme packages and unique items. In addition to the auctions, there are small games of chance, where guests can pay $5-10 for a chance to win a prize. There are opportunities for guests to get involved at a variety of levels!
What happens with money raised at the Gala?
All proceeds from the Gala support student programs at OLSH, like arts, athletics, curriculum, and activities.
Does anything else happen at the Gala besides the auctions?
This year’s Gala Committee has some surprises up their sleeves for the event to create a fun, party atmosphere! Also during the evening we recognize a member of the OLSH Community with the annual Legacy Award. Created in 2009, the Legacy Award recognizes individuals, couples or groups who have helped to preserve the legacy of OLSH. Legacy Awardees have been generous with their time, talent, and treasure, keeping an eye to the future and ensuring generations of students the opportunity to be transformed at OLSH.
