Auction Gala

The Auction Gala is a longstanding Lake Ridge Academy tradition and offers a fun opportunity to gather with parents, alumni, and friends. This formal event has become an integral component for the school's success in providing an exceptional education for our students.

In a single evening, the event provides as much financial support for school programs as the Annual Fund. In just the last decade alone, the auction has made it possible for Lake Ridge Academy to upgrade computer labs, renovate campus spaces, complete funding for the new Kemper Science and Engineering building, and meet many other school needs that are not covered by tuition. Proceeds from the event provide significant enhancements to school programs, and participation from many families has strengthened our Lake Ridge Academy community.

The Auction Gala also includes the Hall of Fame ceremony and kicks off Reunion Week, a week-long celebration for Lake Ridge Academy alumni and friends.

You can support the Auction Gala by volunteering on the Auction Committee, procuring auction items, mobile bidding to win items, buying a sponsorship or advertisement, and of course--attending the auction!

Registration is now open for the 2018 City Lights Auction Gala. Please visit for more information!
