International Gala 2022

International Gala: Travel Auction & Preview Party 2022 

On April 23, the ISI community was reunited for the 2022 International Gala. For more than 25 years the Gala has been a highlight on the ISI calendar and this year’s event did not disappoint. After a two year break due to the pandemic, the Gala returned, refreshed and with an extra special reason to celebrate - the debut of the Chen Family Lower School.

More than 350 guests representing families and friends of the school were welcomed into the new building to preview the spaces and celebrate the successful completion of the ONE ISI campaign. Two decades in the making, the Chen Family Lower School is the realization of a dream to unify the school community. Made possible by the collective commitment of the ISI community, the Chen Family Lower School is a tangible demonstration of what is made possible through philanthropic giving.
