Each ticket includes 2 drink vouchers.

Online auction is open to anyone for free, however you must "purchase" an auction online pass ($0) in order to register and receive a bidder number.

*Please note our Health & Safety Measures for attending in person on March 12:

All event attendees must be symptom free, have no known exposures within 5 days prior to the event, and present proof of Covid-19 vaccination (complete series or booster received), OR a negative test result within 36 hours of the event. Home tests will be accepted. Email advancement@alabamawaldorf.org with questions and images. The Kress Building requires masks upon entry and in the elevator. These policies are subject to change at anytime.


​All proceeds from the event benefit Alabama Waldorf School. The Gala accounts for about a third of our annual fundraising efforts. Last year, together with help from donors like you, we raised nearly $30,000! Every contribution directly supports this vibrant education for the children we love — providing classroom supplies, playground maintenance, teacher training, tuition assistance and more.  


All ticket sales are stopped at this time. You can still make a donation. Please contact the event organizers if you have any questions.
Free Online Auction Only
