SD Celebrates: April 25, 2020

Join fellow parents and friends for
SD’s biggest fundraising event of the year!

SD Celebrates (formerly known as the Gala) will take over the entire Terrapin Crossroads venue, setting the stage for a lively, fun, and inclusive event. The Fund A Need paddle raise will be followed by local headlining band, Soul Ska, featuring SD’s own percussion teacher, Lex Razon.


Your sponsorship will help underwrite the costs of the event, enabling a greater percentage of funds raised from SD Celebrates to directly benefit San Domenico students, teachers, and programs. Sponsors will enjoy a pre-party from 5:00-6:00 pm in the upstairs Living Room Lounge at Terrapin Crossroads featuring curated wine and food tastings, full bar, and a live performance.
