Who doesn’t like a party?
Magellan Parents are hosting fun for everyone – moms, dads, both, kids, the entire family! Whether its Bingo with the World Famous *BOB*, Parents Night Out on Valentine’s Day or a family Holi Celebration on campus, there’s something for everyone!
Lights, Camera, Auction! Get your gown and tuxedo ready and walk down the red carpet in style to raise funds as we celebrate Magellan’s 10th anniversary. The hotel Van Zandt offers the perfect backgdrop for a glamourous celebration of a decade of success that will inspire you to continue to support our school’s mission.
Gala provides an opportunity for parents and teachers to have fun while raising money to support and enhance every student’s experience at the school. Have a great time enjoying wonderful food, reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones, bid on some fabulous auction items, and dance the night away!
Each year Gala supports projects that benefit everyone. Past Paddles Up projects include new Musical Instruments, Move & Groove Sensory Space at Chimney Corners, Science Equipment, Expanded Library Resources, Bus and Van for student transportation, and our Turf Field at Anderson Lane.
Catch up with old friends and get to know new ones, bid on silent and live auction offerings, and enjoy an open bar the entire evening, from the cocktail reception through dinner, dessert and the afterparty.
