Our thanks to this year's Spring Gala corporate sponsors:
Come celebrate the arts at Stanbridge!
On Saturday, March 7, 2020, from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m., Stanbridge Academy's annual fundraising gala will take place at Domenico Winery’s tasting room in San Carlos.
We expect approximately 150 guests from throughout the Bay Area at this year’s Spring Gala—Stanbridge parents, friends, families, alumni, and staff—making it our biggest fundraising event ever!
We are excited to announce that tickets are now on sale through Wednesday, February 12!

This year's gala will highlight the arts program at Stanbridge, celebrating visual arts, music and drama classes, rock band, ceramics, A/V club, yearbook, afterschool enrichment, and summer school art offerings. We are proud to be a school that offers a comprehensive arts program to all of our students in grades K–12. You'll be able to see some of our student-created artwork at a specially-curated "gala-ry" on display at the gala venue. We'll also be featuring a special performance by music and drama teacher Matt Robidoux (with counselor James Warren), and a keynote speech by Stanbridge's longtime visual arts instructor Camille Geraci.
In addition to all of that, the gala will feature Stanbridge science teacher/improv comic Jay Huston as emcee; the return of Bay Area jazz legend Jesse Foster performing with an A-list lineup of musicians; a full hosted bar featuring beer, cocktails, and some of Domenico's finest wines; plus a delicious menu of hearty appetizers, desserts, and a dinner that includes turkey, beef tenderloin, salads, sides, and—of course—the ever-popular mashed potato bar.
All proceeds from the evening's tickets, donation drawings, and auction will benefit our Annual Fund, with a special fund-a-need focus on the Stanbridge’s arts program. If you are unable to attend the gala on March 7th, you can still make a fund-a-need contribution.
