Green Gate Gala

OUR ANNUAL AUCTION, the Green Gate Gala, is a fun, festive event for the community to celebrate and support our scholarship fund. 100% of the net proceeds from the Gala go directly into Visitation’s financial aid budget. This academic year, 30% of Visitation’s students received almost $2 million in financial aid assistance. We believe that when we come together to support the increasing needs for financial aid at Visitation, our entire community is strengthened. By working together, this event helps to opens doors and make the dream of a Visitation education a reality for remarkable, deserving students who need our help.
