Given that major conventions and celebrations continue to be canceled in the area, and with the suggestions from the federal government that large gatherings be postponed, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone the gala, likely to the fall.
Our decision was arrived at after careful deliberation and consultation. We believe it is in the best interest of our families, guests, and overall PVI community.
Thank you to all of our generous sponsors, ticket holders and donors. A special thank you to our many volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the last several months to offer you what was sure to have been a memorable event. We look forward to celebrating with you soon, as we consult on options for a future date.
We will be in touch with more details as they become available. In the meantime, we direct you to the FAQs listed below.

If you find you are unable to attend when we announce the new gala date, please know that we can refund your ticket at that time. We are confident our community will rally during this challenging time and appreciate your patience.
I PROVIDED A SPONSORSHIP AND/OR PROGRAM BOOK AD FOR THE GALA, WILL IT CARRY OVER?
Yes, your sponsorship and program book ad will automatically be applied to the rescheduled gala.
HOW DOES THIS AFFECT MY GALA DONATION (SILENT AUCTION, VACATION HOMES, ETC.)?
Your donation will be used for the rescheduled gala. If you have concerns about your silent auction donation, please contact Elisa Johnson, Auction Co-chair, at email@example.com.
CAN I STILL BID ON THE SILENT AUCTION?
If you were excited to bid on specific silent auction items, we are still going to have an online auction for an abbreviated collection, including time-sensitive items (such as our Teacher and Student Free-Lunch-for-a-Year offerings). The balance of silent auction items will be used for the gala on the new date. We will be in touch with more information.
WHEN WILL RAFFLE WINNERS BE DRAWN?
Raffle tickets will continue to be sold online. We will select the winners on a date TBD in the near future.
