Global Gala Returns After Two-Year Hiatus

The Global Gala, GLCPS’s long-established scholarship fundraising event, returns this year after a two-year hiatus caused by the Covid 19 pandemic. Organizers of the gala have made a few changes that promise to make the event even more fun than in previous years. They have changed the location, hired a new caterer, and added a full (cash) bar. There will still be an auction which is already live and online so that bidders can get a jump on some excellent treasures. The live auction at the event has been eliminated this year but the ticket auction at which gala guests can purchase raffle tickets in hopes of winning some exciting prizes that are not in the bidding auction, is back by popular demand.
