2020 GCS Benefit Auction - "40 Years of Grace" - April 18, 2020
For 20 years, friends of Grace Christian School have gathered in April for a night of fun, live entertainment, generous bidding, food, and fellowship! This April is no different! We invite you to grab your friends and family and join us in celebrating 40 years of God's faithfulness to His children through this little place called Grace.
Every dollar raised at the auction goes to furthering the mission of GCS. We welcome you to not only attend, but to bid generously, volunteer, donate, and sponsor the auction. It takes a large community to support and sustain something as unique and valuable as our school, and we invite you to be a part of it!
Our theme this year is 40 Years of Grace in celebration of our founding in 1980! Grab your friends and make plans to attend this celebration event. Tickets are $10 in advance and include live entertainment, a silent and live auction, dinner, and dessert. The auction is only for adults 18 years and over, so please make childcare plans and enjoy your night out! You do not want to miss this!
Grab your tickets and register today!
