The Polar Bear Foundation annual Gala is where we celebrate the Foundation's success in supporting the students, teachers, and staff of the Northern York County School District.

The Gala is also our largest fundraising event of the year. But it is also our favorite! This is where we get to thank last year's donors for all they have done for the District! Our donors are THE reason the Foundation is successful.


This event is a fun reason to dress up, eat tasty food, and enjoy time with friends, family, and community members.
