The Secret Garden
Saturday, February 8

This year's Annual Gala event will be held on February 8th, 2020 at the Westin Hotel in Rancho Mirage from 6-11 pm. This annual event is one of our most-anticipated and biggest fundraisers of the year! Proceeds from the Gala directly benefit all students, faculty, and important programs at Palm Valley School. Our theme of "Secret Garden" is being underwritten by one of our sponsors, Leon's Landscaping. Come see the ballroom transformed into a Secret Garden where magic awaits! Signature cocktails, gourmet catering, silent and live auction items, and a special live musical performance by a former Palm Valley School student, Carrie St. Louis, best known for her portrayal of ‘Glinda' in the Broadway and national touring company of Wicked, as well as for her portrayal of ‘Sherrie' in the Broadway and Las Vegas companies of Rock of Ages.

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.
