– Silent and live auctions to raise money for the John B. Gorrie Foundation

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO THE GALA?

Wear whatever you want–we just want you to enjoy the fun!
 
SHOULD I GO (EVEN IF I DON’T KNOW A TON OF PEOPLE AT GORRIE YET)?
YES! If you haven’t been to the Gala yet, this is a GREAT year to start because for the first time it is being held in the comfort of your own home! Even though the event will be virtual, there will still be opportunities to mingle with parents and get to know the Gorrie community.
 
WHAT CAN PARENTS DO TO HELP WITH THE GALA?
Buy Tickets! And tell your friends to join you for the party!
