Gala in “The Cloud”

Welcome to our virtual Gala and online auction benefiting Castle Preservation Society!

September 20 – October 12, 2020

In a recent Gala survey, 65% of respondents said they’d rather make a gift than attend an event this year, so we’ve brought the ability to bid on unique Castle items and experiences on-line where they’re accessible to all.
