What is the Gala?

One of Canyons Education Foundation’s annual fundraisers; an evening of fun, fundraising and a chance to get to know other CEF supporters, Canyons Education Foundation Board Members, Canyons Board of Education Board Members and District Administrators. Canyons is a district of distinction and we are eager to share our story.

What should I wear?

The Gala alternates between formal and casual depending on the year, this year is more formal.  Cocktail / Semi-formal attire preferred.  A suit for men and a dress for ladies.

What to expect?

The evening starts off with hors d’oeuvres, fun photo booth, socializing and a surprise live singer serenading in the background with his acoustic guitar.  The night will then continue with a sit-down dinner and program which includes celebrating the scholarship winners followed by our entertaining and inspirational special guest speaker, Jason Hewlett.


We are adding a little excitement to dessert with a Dessert Dash!  A variety of sweet confections will be up for grabs.  Each table will bid to ‘dash’ for the best dessert.  Highest bid gets first choice and so on until every table has a dessert to share.


The online auction opens April 12, the day before the event, and will end as we close out the evening at the gala.  Everyone is asked to register prior to the event for ease of bidding.  Auction items will be at the gala to preview and winning bidders can take their goods with them.

Why should I attend?

Your attendance is important and appreciated!  It is a great opportunity to engage with others in the Canyons community.  Your attendance also helps raise much needed funds for scholarships, mental health initiatives and stocking our District Resource Closet with basic necessity items for students in need.

Can I participate if I can’t attend?

YES, register for the auction and bid on items.  If you win, your items will be available in our office either the next day or the following Monday. You can sponsor a scholarship recipient’s ticket for $200 or just make a donation to support the efforts of the Canyons Education Foundation.
