40th Annual Groves Academy Scholarship Gala

Be a part of the fun at Groves Academy's premiere fundraising event of the year hosted at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center.

This fun-filled event helps student and families who need Groves Academy but cannot afford to pay the full cost of tuition. More than 500 Groves friends and families join together this special night in celebration of our school and our amazing students.

The evening begins with games, punchboards, a wine stop & shop, and a silent auction followed by dinner and dessert. Experience the excitement of a live auction and scholarship challenge during dinner and cap the night off with live entertainment and dancing.
