Given the circumstances and uncertainty brought about by COVID-19, the GEF Board of Directors decided to cancel this year’s Gala. With many unknowns in the coming year, we have decided to plan our next Gala for spring 2022.

Sponsorships and ticket purchases were converted to donations that allow GEF to support Goochland students and teachers with distance learning. In order to recognize and thank all our sponsors for the 2020 Gala, we’re running a full-page, color advertisement in the Richmond Times Dispatch on Sunday, September 20th. 

It’s not the same as a fun party, but we want to honor our supporters for their commitment to our work, and show off the great spirit of Goochland County.

Here’s to looking forward to spring 2022 when we’ll put on our dancing shoes!

The Goochland Education Foundation thanks these wonderful businesses and individuals for their commitment to the mission when we had to cancel our annual fundraising event this year. This invaluable support guarantees that the GEF will continue to help Goochland County Public School students reach new horizons by providing them with innovative, visionary educational experiences designed to enrich and maximize their learning potential. The GEF recognizes and honors each and every one.
