Gala

Gala Invitation

What is Gala?


CARPOOL's Largest Annual Fundraiser

Because our services are free, we rely heavily on fundraising efforts and donations to stay in operation. This semi-formal event is comprised of a sit down dinner as well as a live and silent auction that typically raise money to account for close to a quarter of the following year's operating budget. Gala 2016 will take place this year on April 2nd, 2016. If you would like further information or to be added to our mailing list, please e-mail Shannon Hughes, Director of Gala, at gala@carpool.tamu.edu
