Harker brought back its spring gala following completion of the athletic center, with its Zhang Gymnasium, and the Rothschild Performing Arts Center with its Patil Theater. More than 370 parents, alumni, faculty and staff were feted at the quickly-sold-out event with custom videos, singing, live music, dancers, top-drawer food and drink, a hot band and great company.
The event also served as the capstone for the school’s 125th anniversary celebration. “Our 125th Anniversary Gala was one for the ages!” said Kim Lobe, director of advancement. “It would never have been as successful as it was without the generosity of our guests and sponsors, and the commitment of our students and alumni, who all came together to honor Harker’s legacy and bright
promise for the future. Thank you!”
