What is the Black & Gold Gala? The Black & Gold Gala is an annual fundraising event for Northland Christian School, usually held during the spring semester. In years past, this event has raised funds for stadium lights, new desks, computers, etc. This year’s event, raising funds for important and exciting campus projects, will also provide a time of fellowship and fun for our Northland family.

Who should attend Black & Gold? Everyone! This event is for all current and past Northland families, alumni, and friends of Northland. Anyone who wishes to support our school mission and help us advance in our initiatives is invited to be a part of this event.

What is planned for this event? This event has two components: a virtual silent auction that will take place from April 19th to 21st and the in-person gala that will take place on April 23rd. At the in-person gala, dinner will be served, and there will be multiple ways to participate, win fabulous prizes, and support Northland—a raffle, balloon pop, spirits pull, big board, and live auction. You must purchase tickets (or a table) in advance to attend the in-person event, but you can participate in the virtual silent auction (and still support Northland) even if you aren’t planning to attend Black & Gold in person. Details about the silent auction will be sent in the coming weeks.

What is the timeline for this year’s Black & Gold event? At 6:30pm, the event opens with a social hour. Guests can participate in the balloon pop, view the raffle and big board items, and see a preview of the live auction items. During the social hour, light bites will be served, and a cash bar will be available, offering mixed drinks, beer, and wine (with mint juleps, of course, being the signature cocktail for attendees). Following the social hour will be dinner and a live auction emceed by a special guest. The evening will conclude with the closing of the Big Board and raffle, so guests can take home the fantastic prizes they won! More detailed information about the timeline will be sent in the coming weeks.

Where is this year’s Black & Gold Gala taking place? The gala will be held at The Estates at Pecan Park, located at 22633 Park Road, Tomball, TX 77377.
