Let’s be devilish at our first annual fundraiser!
Shortridge High Global Gala
April 23rd from 7:00-11:00 p.m.
at the Basile Opera Center
4011 N. Pennsylvania
Please join us and celebrate Shortridge High School. We will have a fun evening of camaraderie, games, food and drinks, and an amazing silent auction. Bring your significant other, your bestie or a colleague, but don’t bring your kids. This will be an adult-only event (yahooo!). You can, however talk about your amazing kids and their incredible school, because that is what we will be celebrating! This sounds a little informal, because we want you to know that this is not a formal event. It is, most importantly, a fun event where we can socialize and get to know each other more.
We will also raise some money for Shortridge on this night. Even though our teachers know how to get along on a shoestring, they need more resources to be competitive with other world-class schools. This year the money raised at this event will support STTEAMM education. What is STTEAMM? Science, Technology, Theater, Engineering, Art, Math and Music. STTEAMM is long for STEM. We think that adding the arts is important for our students. There is a great article on the importance of STEM education here.
By buying tickets, playing games at the Global Gala, bidding on silent auction items, making a donation and volunteering, you will be supporting Shortridge. Your contribution helps Shortridge continue our tradition of offering Indianapolis youth a rigorous education and resource-rich experience. Every gift makes a difference, no matter what the amount.
To purchase tickets or to make a donation, click the tickets button. The first 75 ticket purchases will receive 5 extra game tickets each, so don’t procrastinate!
A huge thank you to our generous silent auction donors (many more to come – this is just the beginning!)!!

All you need is a Smartphone and a sense of Craziness.These adventures take place in the cities you live or visit, and allow you to see familiar or new sites and have fun in a whole new way. When we say fun in a whole new way, we mean you might be kissing a parking meter – or dancing on a street corner – kinda fun. Can also do Wacky Walks or 3-Quest Challenge instead.
