A Gala? What happened to the Auction?

For the past decade, L-Dub, supported by countless volunteers hours and donors, has held a fundraising auction in the spring. Planning begins in the fall and after months of procuring goods, services, trips and adventures our community gathers to celebrate and raise critical funds for  our beloved school. Alumnae come back to help and inspire, faculty speeches are made, a heartfelt video is enjoyed, and everyone leaves feeling hopeful for our future, knowing we are in good hands with L-Dub Alumnae at the helm of this complex world we live in. We also spend much of the evening bidding on silent auction items, raising our paddles in the live auction, all while wishing we had more time to enjoy conversations with friends, make new connections, and relish in a program highlighting what L-Dub is all about – the girls! This is the overwhelming feedback we receive after every Auction.

“The Auction was great, we love the sign ups, the wine toss, dessert dash, raffles, and contributing what we can to the fund a need,  but we sure wish we had more time to mingle and more time celebrate the girls.”

This year marks the beginning of a new decade.
A decade where we will still celebrate, dine, and band together to raise transformational funds in the fund-a need each spring, but it will be one without a silent and live auction. Gone are the days of asking friends, neighbors, restaurants, and businesses to donate to the school; gone are the days of frantically looking for those procurement forms you know you put somewhere for safekeeping; and gone are the days of frantically getting your items in before the deadline! Every member of our community will have the opportunity to support the school: we will have a rafflecommunity events and gatherings to sign up for, and a fund-a-need where every paddle raise at every level directly funds the school.

We still have an event to plan – one that we hope you will consider helping with. There are all sorts of ways to plug in: Join the Gala Team, help by making a dessert, donate a few bottles of wine, but most of all, gather up your friends and families and bring your enthusiastic support of L-Dub!
