Baton Rouge International School
10 Year Anniversary Celebration
Flavors of the World Gala
Welcome to the "Flavors of the World" Gala page! We hope you will honor us with your presence and generosity as we commemorate our tremendous milestone. The 2009-2010 school year marks the 10th Anniversary of the Baton Rouge International School (BRIS). We will officially celebrate this great achievement in true BRIS style by hosting the school’s Flavors of the World Gala at the Louisiana State Museum Saturday, April 24, 2010 at 6:30 p.m.
The mission of BRIS is to educate children from the age of 6 weeks through 12th grade, by giving them the opportunity to master several foreign languages and technology. This rigorous international curriculum opens the doors to prestigious universities in the United States and abroad. As the economy is going global, young leaders will need to master foreign languages and understand other cultures in order to enrich their lives and remain competitive in the international market. Our goal is to raise $150,000 to be used towards the planning and design of a much needed multi educational facility that will benefit BRIS students and the community at large.
We want this year’s Gala to be a true celebration of an amazing decade, an evening filled with music, exquisite food from around the world, drinks, mingling and lots of fun! Dignitaries representing numerous foreign countries will be present, as well as local and statewide personalities, honoring our great achievement. The program will also include an unveiling ceremony of the schematic design of Phase 1 of the school’s architectural master plan by award-winning architect, Trey Trahan and Associates.
We need your help! In order to meet our financial and educational goals, we must receive generous donations from local celebrities, individual benefactors, along with local, regional and international businesses.
