Bird Rock Foundation’s Spring Gala and Auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year. This mustn’t-miss annual event raises money to provide enriched resources and programs that would otherwise be unavailable to our children. Donated items for the online and live auctions include fantastic ‘teacher features’, splendid art and baskets created by each class, unique dining-out experiences, exciting getaways, and so much more. There are many ways you can support the gala, whether or not you can attend. Become a family sponsor! Host a theme party to auction off! Purchase your favorite teacher a ticket! Or make it simple and donate funds! We look forward to your participation in this wonderful Bird Rock Elementary tradition.
