This year we will party like they did in Die Goldenen Zwanziger - 1920's! Come dressed like Al Capone, Der Blaue Engel, or simply dressed to impress! You'll enjoy

Open Bar * Dinner * Dancing * Herr Ben's Jazz Trio & DJ * Casino * Auctions * Raffle * and much more!

The Spring Gala is our main event to raise crucial funds to help meet our growing need for additional teachers and high quality classroom materials. Like many schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of operation, and GISC relies on the support of you to help our school thrive and grow.

The gala will again be held on the boat at the Columbia Yacht Club, N. Lakeshore Drive on April 29th, 2017. The yacht club is located on the shore of downtown Chicago at the foot of Randolph Street. Parking is available at the nearby DuSable parking lot.
