What? This year’s “Un-Gala” is a fabulous party to help raise money for the Ancona School. It is, as they say in Alice in Wonderland, like a very merry ‘un-birthday’ where we celebrate and support the community we cherish in an unconventional way, at an unconventional time, and in an unconventional place.

And joining this year is local music legend DJ Bonsu! It will be a wonderful party, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you! 

A raffle, you say? This year’s amazing raffle prizes are listed below. Tickets are $20 each, or six for $100.

      • A Vacation for Two to Austin, Texas! Enjoy a weekend getaway for two. Includes two airline tickets on Southwest and a two night stay and breakfast at the Hilton in Austin, Texas!
  • 99 Bottles of Beer! A collection of 99 bottles of domestic and craft beer. Stock your fridge for a party or try a different beer every day for 99 days!
  • A Year’s Supply of Coffee! Enjoy twelve bags of gourmet coffee from Kikwetu Coffee Co., an authentic Kenyan coffee company owned by one of our own Ancona families.

How much? This year we’ve lowered the ticket price: tickets are now $175 each. We would love to see you there to support the Ancona School!

Why? To benefit our amazing community at the Ancona School.
