The first ever virtual Spring Gala netted $409,568 that directly supports the young men of Georgetown Prep, plus an additional $160,000 raised for the Prep Strong campaign through the Raise the Paddle. The Gala chairs were Amber and Walter Hsu P’20, ’21, Maria and Rob Welsh P’16, ’16, ’20, and Cheryl and Patrick Christmas ’88, P’20, ’23, ’24. Their tireless efforts and remarkable organizational skills, as well as their creativity and perseverance in the face of overwhelming obstacles, made this Gala truly a memorable event. Proceeds from this event directly support Georgetown Prep’s academic and athletic endeavors, campus ministry, arts programs, financial aid and continued improvements to our incomparable campus.
Mr. and Mrs. Mark Allen Landis
We are particularly grateful for everyone who supported the Prep Strong: Keeping Our Family Together campaign for the Raise the Paddle portion of the 2020 Virtual Gala. This ever-important short duration campaign was established to assist our families suffering from financial displacement due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Once again, the Prep community rose to the challenge by raising $160,000 at the Gala. In challenging and trying times, our community has proven itself to be there for one another. For this, we are incredibly grateful.
