What is the GIPA Gala:

The GIPA Gala brings all the GIPA parents and their friends together to enjoy a wonderful night out with good food, good drinks, good company and a chance to dance the night away. The Gala is our primary fundraising event of the year. It ensures that our kids continue to enjoy this amazing German program at Sunset and West Lab Elementary Schools, Carver Middle School and Coral Reef Senior High school.

The theme of this year's Gala is "Passport to the World."

As parents from current students in the program meet some veterans of the program, mingle with current and former teachers and enjoy a night out!
