Not Attending?

You can still participate in the auction!

Saturday, March 30, 2024 - 5:00 PM - Sequoyah Country Club


What is the Gala?

The Gala is EB's largest fundraising event and provides vital support for our operating budget. From student support to safety measures, classroom technology, and teacher development, the proceeds make a significant impact on EB's people and programs. A special "Fund for the Future" segment raises extra funds for a specific school need. 

Why should I go?

Beyond a fundraiser, the Gala is a rocking party! This year's theme, A La Discothèque, is an invitation to don your disco glam and hit the dance floor with your grooviest moves. It's a night for our community - parents, teachers, staff, alumni parents, and friends - to connect, dance, and support our beloved EB. 

What else happens during the event?

The night kicks off with a cocktail reception and Silent Auction, where you can mingle and bid on a selection of great services, parties, and other fun lots. We'll enjoy a plated dinner, followed by live bidding on special experiences. Past lots in the live auction have included a trip to Mexico, a week-long stay in Paris, dinner with the Head for ten, a weekend in Tahoe, and more. Many lots are purchased by a group to share the cost and share the fun!  We also plan special raffles and other ways for all families to participate. After the auction, it's time to "Dance, Dance, Boogie Wonderland!" Don't like to dance? Relax and enjoy a coffee and dessert with friends new and old away from the dance floor. 

What's new this year?

This year's Gala will be at a beautiful new venue: Sequoyah Country Club in Oakland. Plus, we've booked a live band - Las Brujas, featuring EB's own Chris Colebourn and alumni parent Stephanie Walton.

I still have questions…

Feel free to call us at 510-809-0636 or shoot us an email at [email protected]. We're here to help.


How can I contribute to EB's Gala and Auction? 

There are many ways to contribute to our biggest soirée of the year, even if you don't plan to attend in person. 


1. Become a Sponsor or Underwriter 

Sponsors and underwriters to help make the Gala more inclusive by covering costs and supporting faculty tickets.

As a sponsor, you will have a unique opportunity to share in the success of EB's largest fundraiser, and help us reach our goal of creating spaces of belonging for all. 

As an underwriter, your contribution ensures that more funds raised at the Gala will directly benefit EB programs, tuition assistance, teacher salaries, and more. You can underwrite the bar, the band, the auctioneer, and even the dessert! 



2. Donate items, activities, or experiences to support the school.

Here are examples of a few items and experiences that we're looking for:

  • A stay at your apartment in Paris
  • Season tickets to the Giants or SF Jazz
  • Host a party or workshop for kids and/or adults
  • Gift certificates, memberships or gift baskets



3. Volunteer!

The Gala wouldn't be possible without our volunteers. If you enjoy behind-the-scenes work, have a knack for decorating, and want to attend the Gala for free while "working" with friends, reach out to [email protected] to get involved.
