8:00 PM - 9:30 PM CST

Join us Over the Rainbow for a magical evening filled with friends, cocktails, cuisine, inspiration, and stunning live and silent auction offerings benefitting Rawson Saunders School.  

This year, the Rawson Saunders gala will be held as a hybrid virtual event, which means that you can choose to participate from home or in the company others.  The main program, including our live auction, will be held via Livestream. 

 

Whether you're joining a house party or watching from home, treat yourself to either delectable hors d'oeuves or a gourmet three-course meal crafted to enhance your evening.  Both options include a signature cocktail kit.  You also have the opportunity to sponsor an Over the Rainbow meal for a Rawson Saunders faculty member.  Additional opportunities for pre-gala support include making a direct donation or becoming a sponsor of one of the many essential components to our gala's success!

 

The first step for all who wish to support the Rawson Saunders Gala is to register.
