  • Fun and games under towering pecan trees
  • Live music

  • Live auction

During the gala, safety precautions will be in place including masks and lots of social distancing in the open air at Salt Lick's Pecan Grove. For those who can't join us in person, the auction will be live-streamed. 


Throughout the pandemic, St. Michael's employees have worked tirelessly to continue providing the highest quality of education in the safest environment for our students, faculty and staff.
