Here at The Girls' School of Austin, we make significant use of the cultural, artistic, and educational resources across Austin.
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. Co-chairs Nicola Davies and Shannon Cunningham master-minded the annual gala’s music themed party, inspiring guests to pay homage to the legends of Rock ‘n Roll. 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.More About GSA Rocks!
