Gala Auction Forms

The Biennial Gala is known for its creative and unique auction offerings. The silent auction, big board, and live auction are the highlights of the event! The Silent Auction lineup of tantalizing sociables, sports events or memorabilia, student-gatherings with teachers, trips to faraway lands, and more are all part of the fun and the fundraising at Gala. Please help the auction team as they put together these exceptional offerings by donating an item today! Not sure what to donate? We've got lots of creative ideas!

Gala Flashbacks

This fundraising event is the highlight of the Post Oak Parents Association's (POPA) community-building events. It takes an army of volunteers working for over a year to make Gala the extraordinary event that it has become.

Every two years, Post Oak’s Gala provides financial flexibility and strengthens the long-term stability of the school. Whether through underwriting, auction, or straight donations, gala support helps offset a variety of school expenses such as increased financial aid, small campus renovations, unexpected repairs, increased professional developments funds, and more! We are grateful to all contributors!
