It's the Gift Hill School's turn to throw a big party and raise money this Saturday. The annual Gala at the Westin Resort will benefit the school's scholarship fund.
Besides the fun and food at the Westin, this year there will also be an "after party," beginning at 10 p.m., at La Plancha del Mar.
The Gala year will honor founders of the school: Janet and Andy Rutnik, Debbiee and Donald Schnell, Peter and Dorothy Muilenberg and Anna and Victor Joahnsen. It was in 1978, with their own four children, that they launched the school.
This year, Live Auction bidders can make their offers in person or online. So, even if you're not going to be at the Westin, you can snag one of these items by placing a bid online here.
