Let us journey back in time for an epic experience at the Gathering of Friends (GOF) Roaring 20's Gala on Friday, March 24, 2023, at the VIP Country Club in New Rochelle. The Gathering of Friends has supported many programs and initiatives that benefit Village Lutheran Church and The Chapel School community. The GOF Roaring 20's Gala delivers a creative spin on this year's theme, "Refuge & Strength," with its iconic Lion symbol. With and through your support, we can make a powerful Rrrroar in creating a significant difference in the next generation and the community.
The Gathering of Friends aims to raise over $100,000. Through this event, your partnership operationalizes and mobilizes the following programs & initiatives:
Robust academic and enrichment offerings to catapult students to greater academic heights and give them a competitive advantage
Technological advancements & enhancements for students
Faculty & staff professional development and training to help launch the next generation of leaders
Scholarship aid for families facing unprecedented challenges post-pandemic

VIP Country Club is a glamorous venue to hold raffles and silent and live auctions (and even welcome guests adorned in the finest 1920's attire).
