SEF Gala: Celebrate the Arts

SEF Gala: Celebrate the Arts
Posted on 02/25/2020

The Suffolk Education Foundation is hosting its 6th Annual Fundraising Gala, celebrating and supporting the fine arts in Suffolk Public Schools.

The ticket price includes a Southwestern style dinner of boneless beef ribs and bacon-wrapped barbecue shrimp.  But the highlight of the fun-filled evening of networking is seeing and hearing the talents of our local students.


Award-winning entertainment by student orchestras, bands, and chorus groups will feature song selections as you travel along America's great highways, celebrate its fantastic cities and states, and marvel at its landmarks and natural beauty.

A few of the song selections include Georgia on My MindCountry RoadsSurfin’ U.S.A.Wabash Cannonball, and Way Down Yonder in New Orleans.  

Displays of the original creations of student artists will amaze you. In addition, you could win a beautiful piece of original art created by SPS art teachers, who are auctioning their artwork to directly support fine arts in your schools. 

New this year will be dessert samples and dessert auction items provided by the culinary art students from the College & Career Academy at Pruden.  Think about apple pie cheesecake to represent New York, peanut butter cheesecake for Virginia, key lime cheesecake for Florida, and possibly macadamia nut & pineapple cheesecake to celebrate Hawaii.


Proceeds of the gala benefit the school division's drama, music, and art programs.
