Celebrate O'Connell with all the glitz and glamour of the roaring '20s at our flagship fundraising event - Gatsby Knights Gala & Auction. Join fellow parents, alumni and friends of O'Connell for a festive night on the town with silent and live auctions, raffles, champagne toasts and a cigar tent. Every cent we raise will benefit the student experience!

Dinner guests will be treated to a festive opening reception, seated dinner with wine service, student performances and post-event dancing with Rhythm6, DC's hottest event band. Throw your boa into the ring and try to win best dressed or best Charleston or visit our complimentary photo booth and take home some fun-time memories.

There are a number of ways to get involved and we hope that you'll join our growing community of committed supporters!
