5:30 PM Virtual Pre-Party
6:00 PM PST Live Event

Join us from the comfort of your own home as we celebrate the excellent teachers, staff, and community at The Bear Creek School. This is a party for everyone. You can dress up or cozy up! We may not be able to gather in person, but we can still celebrate God's faithfulness together.

Last year's first online auction was a success, thanks to our fantastic Bear Creek community. This year we are adding a live virtual Gala that promises to be a fun-filled evening for the whole family. Mark your calendar, and join us as we support the incredible teachers and staff at Bear Creek.

In keeping with our goal of celebrating and bringing together our community, the event is free and open to Bear Creek faculty, staff, current families, grandparents, alumni, and parents of alumni. Help us spread the word! Please share our link with friends and family members.

Fund-a-Need

Your generosity during the Gratitude Gala will help fund two important planks of our new 2024 Strategic Plan. There are two options for the Fund-a-Need this year: 

Invest in People with a gift to bless our teachers and staff by contributing to an honorarium fund to thank them for rising to the challenge of keeping our community safe and healthy in the pandemic, while also teaching students in a new and innovative blended learning environment with grace and excellence.

Invest in Program with a donation to help craft and launch a newly-imagined remote program, allowing families to continue to choose the learning modality that best fits their circumstances, while also fulfilling the vision of making a Bear Creek education possible for more families from a wider geographic area.

Please see below for more information about the event, including how to support, bid online, and join live on Saturday, March 27. You can also check our Frequently Asked Questions.

Join the Pre-Party

On Saturday, March 27, don your "comfort couture," grab your party boxes, gather the family, and tune in to join the event. At the end of the night, we will raise a glass to our teachers and staff with a heartfelt thanks to you!

Help us foster community and connection as we host our first virtual Gala this year! Join us for a fun pre-party on Zoom just before the live event! The pre-party will feature a fun opening trivia—let’s test how much we know about Bear Creek and our beloved teachers, followed by breakout rooms hosted by fellow parents and parents of alumni where you can socialize with friends for 15 – 20 minutes. You can choose to join the breakout rooms by divisions or affinity (grandparents and parents of alumni). We will end the breakout rooms in time for everyone to log in and settle in for the live portion of the Gratitude Gala program.
