Mulgrave Gala 2019
On Saturday, October 19th, bedecked in black tie and sprinkled with stardust, 350 members of our community gathered at the Parq for our Galaxy of Wonders.
Chaired by Shima Fasihi, and organised by a committee of parent volunteers, the event was full of laughter, great food, and fundraising excitement. Guests participated in exhilarating games of chance, hammed it up for photos in front of the 'magic mirror', mixed and mingled, and danced until the wee hours to the beat of DJ Chloé.
We reached $375,000 in fundraising from the night! Most of the proceeds came in during the heart-racing live auction, as well as a frenzy of giving to our scholarship fund. Of this total, $125,000 came from a very generous matching donation (announced in the moment!), which will be endowed to provide long-term, sustainable support for those who could not otherwise afford a Mulgrave education. The remainder of the money raised will be allocated to Momentum which funds initiatives such as classroom resources, annual scholarships, and teacher development.
Our heartfelt thanks to all of our attendees, the Gala Committee, event volunteers, and sponsors - your collective energy and support made our Galaxy of Wonders absolutely out of this world!
