This event consists of a formal dinner, silent auction, and a live auction to raise almost half of the yearly funds required for CARPOOL to operate. This year’s Gala is titled “CARPOOL’s Great Gala with a roaring 20’s type theme and will be hosted at Pebble Creek Country Club in College Station, Texas on .
