The Gala is a great community-building activity and is one of the school’s primary fundraising initiatives. All funds raised help to offset current year operating expenses, specifically professional development opportunities for faculty and staff and student financial aid.
During a portion of the Gala known as “Raise the Paddle,” all funds raised will be used for a specific project to be completed before the start of the next school year. In past years, Raise the Paddle funds have been used to build a terrace, a fountain, and a pavilion for student use, and to provide funds for professional development for Bullis faculty.
We hope that you will choose to support the Gala by attending the event, placing an advertisement or note in the auction program, donating an item for the online or live auctions, or serving as a volunteer.
