 Rancho Mirage


This year's Annual Gala event, was held on February 8th, 2020 at the Westin Hotel in Rancho Mirage from 6-11pm. This annual event is one of our most-anticipated, and biggest fundraisers of the year! Proceeds from this annual event directly benefit all students, faculty, and important programs at Palm Valley School. Our theme of "Secret Garden" was underwritten by one of our sponsors, Leon's Landscaping. Signature cocktails, gourmet catering, silent and live auction items, and a special live musical performance by our very own Barbershop Quartet.

Thanks to our fabulous Gala Committee for helping us create this special event: Lindsay Davis, Kimberley Yang, Eve Fromberg, Michelle Jowitt, Tamara Munoz, Abby Sturgeon, Andrea Turner, Candace Nelson, Susan Rice, and Cherise Sonderman.
