  • Noche de Gala

    The Noche de Gala the second of two annual fundraisers each year. This is a special evening each spring where parents can take a night off from the kids, get dressed up, and enjoy a glamorous night on the town in support of Magellan.
The evening begins with a cocktail hour followed by seated dinner, the Heads or Tails game, and live auction followed by an exuberant afterparty with dancing and a live DJ. 

We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of sponsors and donors who make this evening a success year after year. Not to be forgotten are the Gala Committee, and countless parent and teacher volunteers who each play an important role in bringing the Noche de Gala to life. We are always on the look out for more help with the Gala. Just reach out to our Director of Advancement for more details.
