Donation Deadline for Alverno High School Gala “An Arabian Night” Extended

The date to make donations to this year’s Alverno High School’s Annual Gala, “An Arabian Night,” has been extended until Friday, January 18, 2013. Donations to the Gala can be in the form of a check or money order; gift cards can also be accepted if they include an activation receipt. Additionally, we are also accepting bottles of wine for our “wine auction.” Please remember that all Alverno families are asked to make a donation to the Annual Gala and reminder calls will be made to families who have not yet participated starting in January.

For those surrounded by discarded baskets, basket filler, and gift tins after the flurry of gift-opening this holiday season, remember that the Gala Committee is always in need of items for basket-making. Just drop off any new or gently-used items that the school could use to wrap Gala items and be assured these will be put to good use!

“An Arabian Night,” will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2013 at the Pasadena Hilton. In addition to donating to the auction, remember that all families are required to purchase 2 tickets to the Gala.
