The Gala

The Gala

Our annual Gala is our single largest fundraiser and one of Columbia, Missouri’s premiere black tie events. We bring together community members, families, faculty, and staff for an elegant evening featuring live and silent auctions, raffles, cocktails, dinner, and a unique, unforgettable theme! It also encompasses several smaller Special Occasion 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.

Thanks to our many spectacular guests, sponsors, donors, advertisers, and underwriters, the Gala makes it possible for Columbia Independent School to bring unique and personalized educational opportunities to students throughout mid-Missouri.
