A PreK through grade 12 independent day school

See you at the Gala! 

We’ve set the stage for a truly special gala and live auction on Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020, at the Pavilion at Angus Barn in Raleigh. Thoughtfully planned as a “stand-up social” with community tables and lounges, A Midsummer Night’s Dream will whisk you away to a festive, romantic and entertaining evening.

One of the Parents' Association’s signature events, A Midsummer Night’s Dream gala and live auction is a terrific opportunity for fun and fellowship. Bid on our unique live auction items, boogie on the dance floor and make your way to our photo booths for special mementos of your evening. Guests will enjoy traditional gala fare, including the legendary hospitality and sumptuous cuisine of the Angus Barn.

“The Pavilion is an incredibly beautiful setting— the perfect venue to celebrate all that our community represents,” said event chair Sally Schmalz. “We are excited to unveil a few surprises to showcase our students and our community. The attire is festive, the mood is hopeful, and the night will be magical. Hope you can join us at A Midsummer Night’s Dream!"
