2020 Spring Gala

APRIL 27, 2020

Join us for the 2020 Spring Gala at The Edison Ballroom in midtown Manhattan, where we will honor Dr. James Dawson for his 25 years as Head of School. All proceeds from this event will benefit The Dr. James Dawson Fund for Financial Aid. Since its creation in 2014, The Dawson Fund has provided more than $500,000 in financial aid to students pursuing the arts who could not otherwise afford a PCS education.

6:30 PM - Cocktails & Hors d'Oeuvres​
7:30 PM - Dinner
8:30 PM - Reverse Auction & Program honoring Dr. James Dawson with powerful tributes and performances from alumni and current students.


Thank you to our Spring Gala Host Committee members whose early support has helped to underwrite the evening's direct costs, enabling all additional ticket sales to support The Dr. James Dawson Fund for Financial Aid
