What is the QMS Gala?
The QMS Gala is the school's premier annual fundraiser for adults, 19+. Organized by the QMS Gala Committee, this highly anticipated event includes a champagne reception, sumptuous dinner, silent and live auctions, and live music. The Gala brings our QMS community together for a night of sophisticated fun, all while benefiting our beloved school through the funds raised.
Where do the funds raised go?
Each year, the School chooses a fundraising priority area, based on our current needs. This year, the funds will be directed to Phase II of The Learning Centre, helping to resource the building with furniture, technology and educational tools upon its opening in late 2020.
Who will attend?
The QMS Gala is attended by current and past parents, alumni, and prominent Cowichan Valley community members. It is known for being a highlight of the school year and consistently sells out.
How can I get involved?
Currently, the Gala Committee is gathering donations for our auctions. This is an excellent opportunity to network and promote your business by donating an item or gift certificate. We are in search of items such as destination and accommodation packages, art work, activity experiences, or your favourite bottle of wine to include on the
Wall of Wines
which will be auctioned off during the event. To donate contact
