International-Themed FCEF Gala Set for May 12

The International Hall of Flags in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will this year lend itself both as venue and inspiration for the international-themed Falls Church Education Foundation 2012 Spring Gala and Auction. 

The gala, which will feature a black tie cocktail reception, dinner and auction, will be held May 12. Tickets are on sale now. 

The International theme of the Gala is a tribute to the many international students and friends from overseas who chose Falls Church City as their temporary home away from home. 

The FCEF Gala is one of two major fundraising events initiated by the foundation each year. Its aim is to raise fiduciary and community support for the foundation and the four Falls Church City public schools that it benefits. 

Tickets for the gala are $125 per person and are on sale now A portion of the cost is tax deductible. For more information, contact Donna Englander at 703-248-5627 or
