The Parents Association Gala raises support for Parker's heartbeat, students and faculty, through current-use financial assistance and professional development respectively. Our goal is to raise more than $500,000 for students and faculty each year. Already, we have raised $253,000 for the current-use professional development fund on the Day of Giving.
