2023 Annual Gala

All of us at the GEF are humbled by the continuing support you provide through your sponsorship of our signature event each year. With an anticipated attendance of 200 people and a fundraising goal of $70,000, we can provide the programming that helps us meet the increasing academic needs of our children and help them prepare for an unknown workforce.

Your commitment to becoming a 2023 Annual Gala sponsor will positively impact educational practices. By helping our children develop critical 21st century and STEM skills, they will be prepared to successfully participate in an ever–changing technological and unknown global marketplace.

We’re very excited about our 2023 Annual Gala on March 10 at Dover Hall. Once again, we look forward to a fabulous and lively time gathering with friends while enjoying great food and fabulous music

Thank you so much for your consideration and generosity.

Check out the highlights from our 2022 Gala.
