Pull out the balloons, light the candles and get ready for The Parish School’s 25th Annual Gala: The Big Birthday Bash! This event celebrates the school’s 35th anniversary of educating children who have communication delays and learning differences. Join us as an underwriter for this event benefiting the students of The Parish School.

During this casual, fun-filled night out, your guests will have the opportunity to peruse our silent auction, socialize and enjoy cocktails before a seated dinner and program with live auction. With a lively band and dancing to round out the evening, this is a party you will not want to miss!

Below is information regarding our sponsorship levels. You can also see year-long underwriter opportunities at www.parishschool.org/35years.
