Raise a toast to your community as INTL’s Annual Gala & Auction returns for an evening of extravagant fun. This year’s theme is Champagne, so start the night with a glass of French Roederer and cocktails. Then enjoy a fantastic dinner, and participate in our exhilarating live auction, where you will have a chance to win one-of-a-kind experiences, vacations, and dinners.

Our community is looking forward to returning in person to Gala, and we will do so by carefully following public health guidelines. We require proof of full vaccination (with booster) and require a negative COVID-19 test result. Purchase your tickets early in case capacity is reduced.
