After careful consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic and the CDC’s guidance around social distancing and large group events, we have decided to cancel the Le Jardin Academy Gala: Exploring New Horizons scheduled for May 2.
Gala proceeds--projected to surpass $250,000, nearly 25% of LJA’s total contributions for the year--were intended to sustain scholarships, impact programs, teacher development, and student learning in the months ahead. Now, with our educators and students forging into the exciting yet uncharted territory of Distance Learning, and with the economic strains of this unfolding pandemic still emerging, your support and generosity are more important to us than ever before.
We hope for your continued support by way of a fully tax-deductible donation. As an expression of gratitude for maintaining your support during these challenging times, sponsorships of $3,500 or more will receive a special mahalo gift reminiscent of the gala. You'll also be invited to join LJA for a celebratory event on campus at a date and time more conducive to gathering.
We also welcome you to make a donation for our silent auction. We are working to move our silent auction online and invite bidding when appropriate for our community.
We appreciate your dedication to LJA during this unprecedented time, and wish you well!
