Gala Procurement

Both the Gala and the Spaghetti Supper rely on the donation of auction items to raise the funds we need to keep CIS a vibrant place to learn. All of our donors are seen by hundreds of excited and appreciative attendees on the night of the event, in our catalog, and in lead-up advertising on social media.

Ways to Donate

  • Making a personal donation such as the use of a vacation home
