Gala Excitement Kicks Into High Gear!

This year’s Gorrie Gala, Havana Nights, is going to be one hot night, and we want to be sure that everyone has the chance to participate in what is sure to be a great time --- that is why we are asking for your help!

Starting NOW we are kicking off our classroom contests. The contests will run until February 17th. That gives each class just over 3 weeks to move to the top spot. This year we are running two contests:

Ticket sales

To reach our overall goal of 325 tickets sold, we will be awarding a prize to the class (and teacher) that sells the most tickets. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will be which class raised the most money. The winning class will receive a pizza party, and there is a prize for the winning teacher as well!


The second contest reflects the purpose of Havana Nights —raising money for our school. The class (and teacher) that brings in the most money through a combination of tickets sales and sponsorships will be awarded an ice cream sundae bar with many candies to load on top! We have a prize for the winning teacher also!

How can you help?

Please purchase your tickets and sponsorships at John B. Gorrie Foundation Gala Registration Page.

We are looking to see your competitive side! Your support of Gala is immeasurable, and we thank you in advance for helping us make Havana Nights a huge success!
