The Charity Committee organizes the Annual Mardi Gras Charity Gala and Silent Auction. This event, held in March, has raised thousands of dollars for local organizations that support some of the most vulnerable communities in our region including WEAVE, UndocuFund, and Opening Doors. The Gala’s Silent Auction features art and other creative contributions from GGE students. The night of fun also includes live music and light fare. Costumes are encouraged.
