Support Hamilton District Teachers & Students

We still have a million dreams to enrich, enhance, and extend the learning opportunities for teachers and students in the Hamilton School District!

However…. nothing is more important than safety for our district and community partners. Given the accelerating Coronavirus impact and health agency recommendations to limit large gatherings, we have decided to transition the event from an Auction Dinner to an Online Auction.

We have worked diligently to bring an updated and exciting event to you. Our community partners, parents, and school faculties have generously supported the the foundation with auction donations. So while our circumstances have changed, the need to support teachers and students remains.

Later this week will be sending more information regarding your option to refund your Gala ticket or donate the value of your dinner ticket . We will share more information regarding the upcoming online event and refund opportunities in the coming days. Thank you for your patience and support during this process.

We hope you will continue to support the Gala in its online form. Please register All auction items will be available to see and bid on soon! Our Gala will be online April 4th for all to participate in.
