GSA Rocks! Annual Girls’ School Gala Smashes Records.

Families, faculty and friends of The Girls’ School of Austin rocked out on Sat., April 9 at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center.

From the ‘name that song’ game show entertainment to a rollicking live auction that helped the event raise a record breaking $140,000, “GSA Rocks!” was a party that would make even Rock ‘n Roll Hall of famers proud.
