Holy Family School of McKinney invites the public to its annual gala on Friday, Sept. 14.

This year, gala organizers are harking back to the school's roots as “La Escuelita” with a fun-filled fiesta. 

The event will include delicious Tex-Mex from San Miguel Grill, live music and dancing with The Buster Brown Band, and a live auction and silent auction conducted by Benefit Bidding.

The event will be held at The 1899 Farmhouse in Lucas, Texas, in a beautiful country setting. Just as with the popular “Boots & Bowties” events in the past, Holy Family ¡Fiesta! promises to be a great time for a great cause.

Holy Family School has been providing high-quality preschool education to the children of McKinney since 1951. The school was founded as “La Escuelita,” a school for children of the migrant farm workers of east McKinney. 

A mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas, Holy Family serves children from 6 weeks to fifth grade, with an infant room, an accredited preschool program, and after-school and summer programs for school-age children. 

The curriculum includes a hands-on organic garden, bilingual preK, and an emphasis on Christian values. Holy Family strives to serve all children, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. To do so, the school depends on funds raised from the annual gala.

Event sponsors include Torchmark Corporation, Square One Mortgage and LegacyTexas Bank. In-kind donations have been provided by Wales Manor Winery, Metro Linens, Baylor Medical Center at McKinney and Independent Bank. 

General seating tickets are $75 each, or reserved tables of 10 may be purchased for $1,000. To purchase tickets, donate auction items or serve as a sponsor, contact any board member, or call the school at (972) 562-5476.
