Gala & Auction

Thank you for supporting Sunstone at the 80s Prom Night Gala & Auction!

Thank you to everyone who attended the 80s Prom Night Gala & Auction and thank you to everyone who raised their paddle from afar! The 2023 Gala & Auction was a success, thanks to the amazing generosity of our community.

It would not have been possible without the work of our Gala & Auction committee, community members, room parents, and auction volunteers. Thank you!

Thank you also to community members who donated their time and items to this fabulous event.

We couldn’t have done it without all of your support!

Stay tuned for next year’s Gala & Auction date – and theme! We look forward to seeing you next year!



Support Sunstone Montessori’s students and programs through direct sponsorship!

Our goal is to cover the entire cost of the event with sponsorships and ticket sales, so all funds raised during the event will go directly to benefitting the children and families of Sunstone. We invite you to partner with us to make our goal a reality. This is a wonderful option for businesses.

Donate an Item

You can support Sunstone’s Gala & Auction through item donation.

Cash Donation or Paddle Raise

You can contribute a cash donation through the paddle raise and special appeal. Please send an email to Breanna and let her know that you would like to raise your paddle for our community!


Do you want to volunteer to help set-up the event or to help with other volunteer opportunities for the event? The Gala & Auction is a big event, and it takes a lot of people to put it together. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Breanna.


Q: When is the auction?
A: The Sunstone Gala & Auction is on May 6, 2023 at 6:00 p.m.

Q: What exactly is the auction? What happens there?
A: Great question! The Gala & Auction is our largest annual community event. We invite the entire parent community to attend. At the Gala & Auction, you will peruse a silent auction, enjoy drinks from the open bar, and play games for a chance to win prizes. This is followed by dinner and a live auction, where you can bid to win trips, special experiences, and classroom projects. After the live auction, we turn up the music, and have a dance party to finish out the night!

Q: What should I wear to the auction?
A: Whatever you want! Our community gets excited about the Gala & Auction, so we recommend you dress to impress. This year’s theme, 80s Prom Night, makes it easy to choose an outfit. If you don’t have a prom dress, any 80s fashion is more than welcome. If you need any inspiration, we’re happy to give you some ideas.

Q: Can I help out?
A: Yes! Many hands make light work and we would love to have your help. Please email Breanna for volunteer information.
