Our annual Gala is our single largest fundraiser and one of Columbia, Missouri’s premier black tie events.   With an original and exciting theme each year, we bring together community members, families, faculty, and staff for an elegant evening featuring live and silent auctions, raffles, cocktails, and dinner.  The Gala also includes several smaller Special Occasion events, as well as our family fundraiser, the Spaghetti Supper. These events are crucial to the support of our financial aid program, which benefits 38% of CIS students.  

Our generous guests, sponsors, donors, advertisers, and underwriters make it possible for Columbia Independent School to bring unique and personalized educational opportunities to students throughout mid-Missouri.  

This year’s Gala is going to be a Roarin’ Good Time as we celebrate the our roarin’ 20th anniversary.  Save the date for Friday, February 8, 2019 because the joint will be jumping and you will not want to miss this swanky soirée.
