2022 Groves Gala

Groves Gala

Annual Groves Gala on Saturday, April 23, 2022

The Groves Gala is an annual celebration of Groves Learning Organization’s™ mission to build confidence, success and purpose through transformative learning experiences.

The Gala will bring hundreds of Groves families, alumni, sponsors, grandparents, donors, and community members together for an inspirational evening. This event will include an opportunity to bid on exciting auction items and support the important work of GLO.

The Gala support provides critical financial aid for our students, and expands K-3 literacy partnerships with schools in our community to help close the literacy achievement gap.
