What a Great Gala!
Posted 04/20/2018 05:45PM

Thank you to everyone who attended, dressed up, and supported the 30th Annual FAIS Gala and Auction this past weekend at the Sentinel Hotel. It was a great success and we raised over $215,000 for FAIS! There were 200+ people in attendance including one table of fun-loving, generous alumni parents!

We raised nearly $90,000 for our Special Appeal, funding the new amphitheater that will bridge the new middle school with the existing campus. We are still accepting donations, and don't forget to see if your company will match your 100 percent tax-deductible gift!

There are still spots available in many Salon Parties, one of which is the NEW Cinco de Mayo Salon Party:

Come celebrate Cinco de Mayo with true Mexican flare! We'll have live Mariachis, a make-your-own burritos station, tamales, Mexican desserts, margaritas, and Mexican beer. Organize a group of friends or make new ones at this custom Cinco de Mayo party!
Hosted by: Denisse Reyes & Matt Conine and Danny & Darine Sadakah.
Date: Saturday, May 5, 2018 5:30-9:00 p.m.
Cost: $75

Gala attendees enjoyed a video showcasing our students' thoughts and aspirations--watch it here!

Special thank you to the Gala Co-Chairs, Regan Nelson and Jennifer O'Brien and the rest of the committee for putting together what was a glamorous evening celebrating FAIS. Thank you to Andrew Kilshaw, the emcee, for bringing his charm and wit to the evening.

There are still spots available in many Salon Parties, to keep the party going from our Gala! The next party on the calendar is the FUN Athleta Shop & Sweat.

Come for the workout, stay for the shopping! There will be a fabulous Athleta trainer led workout followed by refreshments and shopping. Athleta will be donating 10 percent of sales back to FAIS. Perfect time for summer and outdoor workout adventures!
