The Gala is a multi-tiered event and depending on your choice of participation you may choose to attend the program at 7:15pm, which will be followed by a dessert reception, or you may choose to join us for dinner prior to the program at 6:00pm.

The Gala is the school’s annual fundraiser. This year we will honor Head of School, Sharon P. Levin, for her 35-year commitment, leadership, and dedication as she retires from Akiba-Barrack. There is an amazing lineup of alumni guest speakers who will pay tribute to Sharon, and we will also be formally kicking off the 75th anniversary of the school.  (Possibly link to Sharon page.)

Dressy Casual: Given the time of year, we encourage everyone to wear a combination of relaxed and refined clothing. No shorts please. We are also requesting our guests to wear comfortable shoes and no heels which could damage the tennis court surfaces.

Shlomo Katz and Elite Caterers will partner with the school to present an amazing evening of incredible food – level of observance is Glatt Kosher.

Complimentary valet parking will be available.

There are many levels of support. Learn more here. Special sponsorship and patron level packages are also available along with options to place ads in our tribute journal.

All proceeds from the Gala to benefit the Annual Fund. You may also wish to make an additional gift to The Sharon P.

Each year, from this fund, an award will be given to a graduating senior for high academic achievement and exemplary leadership.
