Galas

DFSF Annual Gala

The DFSF Annual Gala is our most exciting fundraising event of the school year. This important event is a vital source of funding for programs that support the strategic goals of our school district, and enhance the educational experience of children at all three district schools. Our live auction is the centerpiece of the Gala. Through the generous donation of auction items from our community each year, we have been able to make our fundraising goals a reality. There are many ways you can help! You can purchase tickets, bid on our fabulous auction items or volunteer your time to help make this event extraordinary.


Thanks for joining us on our trip!

We raised $70,000 on our trip around the world as we celebrated our IB MYP accreditation!
