Annual Sunset Gala and Auction


Our Annual Sunset Gala is coming up on Saturday, November 4, 2023!

This year's theme is An Evening Under the Stars / A '90s Prom Night!

Hunt down a baggy suit or spaghetti strap velvet dress, and get ready for a night of dinner, dancing, bidding, spiked punch, and nostalgia.

The Sunset Gala is one of three major fundraisers for our school. It is an adults-only event and is a chance for parents, teachers, staff, and friends of Sunset to gather as a community, dress up and have fun, all while raising money for our amazing school!

An event like this needs a Prom Committee to be successful! There are many ways to help out - both big and small.

  • Event-related skills or connections

    We are looking for parents with event-related skills or connections, such as:
    - graphic designer
    - lighting
    - photographer
    - photo booth
    - decorations
    - event rentals
    - live entertainment

  • Auction Item Donations

    A successful auction needs many items, in a wide range of pricing. Please consider donating items such as gift cards to local businesses and restaurants, wine, sports tickets, theater and concert tickets, vacation stays, and membership guest passes, just to name a few! Fill out the Donation Form here.

  • Count-Me-Ins

    Count-Me-In (CMI) donations help build and strengthen our community and draw upon your talents, resources and interests. CMI events or activities are hosted by a Sunset family, a group of families or staff. You set the date, time, price and number of spots available. You can choose to have your event only for adults, kids or families. This is a wonderful opportunity to have fun with members of our school community. The deadline for CMI donations is Friday, October 13. Read through the FAQs here or fill out the CMI form here.

  • Solicitation Committee

    We are in need of volunteers to help solicit items for the auctions. The more items we have, the better! If you would like to help, please let the Gala & Auction Committee know ( and we will get you access to our donor database to get you started.

  • Small Business Owners

    If you own a business and can donate gift cards, goods, or professional services, please fill out the Donation Form.

    There are also opportunities to sponsor the event and market your business to our Sunset community! More information about sponsorship levels and rewards can be found in our Sponsorship Form. If you have friends or family who are small business owners, be sure to reach out to them!

  • Prom Photos Wanted!

    We are collecting old prom photos for a fun display or slideshow at the Gala (doesn't matter if you went to prom in the '90s!). Please scan and email photos to the Gala Committee at!
