The Spring Gala is the annual marquee event for The Scholarship Fund of Alexandria. The community celebrates the generosity of Alexandrians, honors the achievements of past scholarship recipients and raises contributions to help send local T.C. Williams High School students with financial need to college.


All proceeds from the Spring Gala support scholarships for Alexandria Public School graduates who demonstrate financial need, as well as the ability, commitment and desire to continue their education beyond high school. There is great demand for college scholarships at today’s T.C. Williams, where 2 out of 3 families lives near the poverty level and can struggle to make ends meet, let alone afford college.

All of our generous corporate sponsors are recognized for their investment in the future of our community. Guests have a great night while supporting a great cause.

The Festivities

The 34th Annual Spring Gala is a formal fast-paced evening of dancing, dining, and silent and live auction shopping.   The event includes a cocktail reception with full open bar and signature cocktail, a gourmet meal, an exciting live auction, entertainment and dancing.  It’s Alexandria’s Biggest Black-Tie Party and truly a great night for a great cause — sending local kids in need to college!


The Guests

The more than 550 guests who attend the event are a cross-section of our community —  business leaders, government and elected officials, leaders of the Alexandria City Public Schools, and the community at large. All share a desire to invest in our community by providing our young people with the opportunity to pursue a post-secondary education.

The Auction

The Spring Gala includes a fabulous silent and live auction to help benefit scholarships for Alexandria’s neediest students. Even if you cannot attend this year’s gala, you can browse and bid the catalog beginning in April.
