Noche de Gala is Magellan International School’s primary annual fundraising event. It’s an evening of wonder, community, and celebration supporting the multilingual, international education provided to our students.

 

Funds raised at the Gala allow us to provide an exceptional academic experience to our students by enhancing facilities, expanding academic programs, and hiring and retaining outstanding faculty. This year, we will also be raising funds for specific projects to further enrich our students’ learning opportunities.

Your support of Magellan International School and Noche de Gala promotes the continued growth and improvement of a unique educational offering that enriches the lives of our children and the Austin community.

How much are ticket prices?

Tickets are $250 per person, $2500 for a regular table or $3000 for a VIP reserved table (10 ppl). There is Early Bird pricing which is valid through January 31, 2020. Prices will increase on February 1, 2020. You can also contribute any amount you would like above your ticket price to help fund our teachers and staff tickets.

Can I buy tickets at the door?

No, tickets must be purchased ahead of time online

Is there assigned seating?

If you have friends that you’d like to sit with, you can purchase a reserved table (or a VIP table) and invite them to join you. Otherwise, dinner tables will be arranged at tables of 10. We will group individuals and couples who purchased tickets together based upon their child’s grade.

Why should I reserve a table?

If you know you want to sit with specific friends and family for the dinner and auction, purchasing a table guarantees you will all be seated together.  We recommend getting together to purchase the table and share the cost.

This is my first year at the school and I don’t know 8 other individuals well enough to reserve a table, what should I do?

Reserving a table is a great opportunity for you to get to know other parents from the school. So, go ahead and ask some of the other parents from your classroom if they would like to join you. But, if you really don’t want to, rest assured that everyone will have a table to sit at and that it will be a great night to make new friends in a fun and festive environment.
