The Great Gateway Gathering is an annual celebration and fundraiser to directly support the students and teachers of Gateway Middle and High schools.


Parents/guardians of Gateway’s students and Gateway’s faculty/staff are invited to join the party for an evening of delicious food, open bar, and - special this year - game night! This is a 21+ event.

Bring Your Strategy, Balance, and Aim - It’s Game Night!

We’ll have Giant Jenga, Mega Uno, Tabletop Connect 4, and cornhole for some friendly competition and fun! Pair up with old and new friends to topple the Jenga tower, connect the final four, and drop wild cards in Uno!

Teachers Face-off for the Annual Battle of the Bartenders!

Our teachers will be behind the bar, Middle vs. High School for your tips! All bar tips go directly to support Gateway’s classroom programming.

We Need Sign-up Parties and Auction Items!

Stay tuned for the launch of this year’s online auction and a sneak peek of our silent auction line-up! We're looking for experiences, sign-up parties, and other donations for the fundraising portion of our event. If you have a fun donation idea, please email Cathy Yee, 12th grade parent and volunteer extraordinaire, at Click the buttons below to donate a Count Me In Party or an auction item!



Please note: We are unable to accept donations of used household or personal items. Due to space and capacity, our committee may decline donations of tangible items that we don't believe will "sell" in the auction. Thank you for your consideration!

Supporting Gateway's Mission
