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.

What to Expect as a Bidder

Green Gate Gala 2017

Visitation's 19th annual Scholarship Gala is on Saturday, March 10. We hope you'll plan to attend and share in a wonderful evening with parents, faculty and staff, the Sisters, and alumnae, and all the while, you'll be supporting a great cause, helping raise vital scholarship funds for our bright, talented students.

Without supporters like you, we would not be able to run a successful auction year after year -- however, we realize it's sometimes hard to know how to get involved or lend a hand. We believe that everyone has something to offer and we welcome any level of commitment, be it an investment of time, talent, or creativity.
