What is Gala?

Since CARPOOL is a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on fundraising and donations to operate. 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 being held on Saturday, April 6, 2019.
