Donation Form

Wine Pull

Back by popular demand is our successful wine pull event which takes place during our Gala Auction. It works by purchasing a wine pull ticket during Gala auction and selecting a wrapped bottle of wine from the display. Everyone is a winner! The value of the wines ranged from $20 to $300 and many years we sell out early. If you have any bottles of wine around the house you would like to donate, or you have a connection to a supplier, wholesaler or vineyard, please let us know. We begin collecting bottles in January 2016 during carpool at middle school or we will have a way for you to drop them off at high school. Thank you so much for making this part of the Gala a continued success!

The generosity and resourcefulness of our parent body is the fundamental core of the Chaminade Gala.  There are many ways for you to participate and we urge you to join in and be a part of success of the event.  We sincerely thank you in advance for your support!
