The Gala

The Gala

What We Are

Our annual Gala is our single largest fundraiser and one of Columbia, Missouri’s premiere black tie events. We bring together families, faculty, staff, and community members for an elegant evening featuring live and silent auctions, raffles, cocktails, dinner, and a unique, unforgettable theme! It also encompasses several smaller special events, as well as the Spaghetti Supper. These events are crucial for the support of our financial aid program, which benefits 38% of our CIS students.

What We Do

The Gala is a key element in funding our scholarship and operational budget. Thanks to our many spectacular guests, sponsors, donors, advertisers, and underwriters, The Gala makes it possible for Columbia Independent School to bring unique educational opportunities to students throughout mid-Missouri.
