Nativity School’s ‘Noche de Fuego — Fire and Ice’ will illuminate the night


Get ready to party at this year’s Nativity School Gala in Rancho Santa Fe! Every year The Nativity School hosts an exciting, themed gala for parents, parishioners and everyone who wants to have fun while giving back. This year’s gala “Noche de Fuego — Fire and Ice” will be held Saturday, May 12, at the school’s Holy Family Activity Center. The funds raised by the event go to support programs and specialty projects that impact the whole school and how it affects student learning.

This year marks the 16th Gala event for The Nativity School. Although it’s a labor of love to plan and execute a fabulous party each year, it is the highlight of the school’s fundraising activities. This year’s Event Chair, Karla Ishino Banning, has envisioned an upscale, VIP cocktail party with lounge seating and ethereal red and white décor. The party’s “Noche de Fuego” theme hints at the Mexican cultural undertones provided by the food and entertainment. Banning’s commitment to detail and Mexican ancestry lends itself to making this a truly memorable and entertaining event not to be missed. Guests will be treated to dinner, drinks, dancing, a silent and LIVE auction.

Advance tickets are $100 per guest and are available at the school or through the website. For additional information or if interested in sponsoring the event, please call (858) 756-6763 or visit
