Be a Gala Volunteer

It takes teamwork to make the 144 Grand Gala a success, and volunteers make it possible at every step: collecting and processing auction gifts, decorating the silent auction area and ballroom, checking in guests at the event, etc. Your time and energy as a Gala volunteer can be the greatest gift of all as we work to help make a Prep education affordable for students and families!
