Celebrate Argentina!

Sponsored by the Parent Teacher Organization and supported by the Advancement department, the annual gala is a glamorous evening of fine dining, entertainment, dancing, and silent and live auction bidding in support of key elements of the operating budget.
We will celebrate the Year of Argentina Gala at the beautiful Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Dallas. We are currently working on rescheduling our Saturday, March 28, 2020 event to a later date in light of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) precautions.

Each year the Gala builds upon a tradition of giving at DIS; annual proceeds have made the following purchases possible: 

• Lower school playground equipment
• Technology in the classroom (3D printers, SMART boards, projectors)
• Library books and subscriptions
• STEM lab equipment
• Music recording studio
• DIS Shuttle Van

The evening begins with a silent auction during a cocktail reception.  

A seated dinner offers a meal of fine dining and wine pairings based on the Country of the Year. 

Entertainment is followed by the presentation of the DIS Prix de L’Amitié award to an individual in the community who has helped further the mission of DIS.  

After dinner, we hold a live auction followed by a "Paddle Up" portion when guests can make dollar donations. The dinner concludes with the announcement of the country that will be celebrated during the next school year.

Guests are then invited to dance. All guests who have purchased items (or have the winning bid) check-out to finalize payment and pick up any purchased items.

Your support is invaluable to Dallas International School. Thank you for joining us each year for this memorable evening and giving so generously!
