2018 ACS Gala Save the Date

Dear ACS Community,

We are delighted to announce the ACS 2018 Gala Evening will be held on Friday, March 16, 2018 so please SAVE THE DATE and plan to buy your tickets in January. This year’s theme Sands of time: Educating minds and inspiring hearts will reflect on our long history in Abu Dhabi and our spirit of service to the nation and the world. Last year’s gala was our most successful ever, with more than 450 guests in attendance raising funds for programs at the school, including our FabLab, curriculum enhancements and new outdoor spaces for hands-on learning. Planning for the 2018 Gala Evening is well underway, and we are confident it will be an even greater success with your support.

The 2017 Gala Evening Auction will feature student art projects curated by our inspired art teachers, sought after parking spaces right in front of the school, and of course fabulous auction items donated from members of our own generous ACS Community. You don’t have to be a world-famous chef, or an international star to make a fabulous donation to the auction – just offer a little of your time and talent for a sign-up event or other experience. Our most popular auction items were experiences like the Latin cooking demonstrations, Wine Tasting, Indian Dinner, Pool Party at ACS, the suite at Emirates Palace and FIFA Club World Cup finals tickets…all wonderful and popular experiences. Consider being the hostess with the mostess or perhaps you have a connection with a business that could offer a great in-kind contribution like business class world-wide air tickets, a two-night stay at any luxurious hotel in the UAE and beyond. Try sourcing dinner for 4 or more at your favorite restaurant or VIP tickets for Dubai Opera! If you or someone you know is interested in supporting the auction, please complete the Auction Donation Form by January 30, 2018.

Consider supporting this year's gala as a sponsor! Last year 45 teacher tickets were underwritten by gala sponsors, which meant that every ACS teacher who wanted to attend could. Gala sponsors receive special benefits including preferred seating at the gala and acknowledgement in the gala invitation and program. To support the gala as a sponsor please contact or call us at 0521046199 or 0508760424.

We hope that you are as excited about the gala as we are. So, please mark your calendars, find that fabulous dress and join us for a very special 2018 Gala Evening.

Wishing you and yours all the best for the holidays,
Shoni Shah & Annika Duerr, Gala Co- Chairs and the 2018 ACS Gala Committee
