05:30 PM untill


Guests will experience a sparkling evening of boots, denim and bling at Naples Classical Academy’s inaugural “Denim & Diamonds” gala on Saturday, May 15 at Destiny Tabernacle, 10610 Immokalee Road, Naples.   The fundraising gala event will kick off with a reception and silent auction at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner and a program at 7 p.m. The featured guest speaker is Congressman Madison Cawthorn, who will deliver an inspirational message on two of Naples Classical’s pillars of virtue: courage and perseverance in the face of major adversity. The youngest member of Congress, he was elected to serve North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District in 2020.   Guests will enjoy fine BBQ by Herb’s Catering, foot-stomping tunes by DJ Gil Blake, line dancing by Dance the Line Ivy G, and fun and laughs by Naples Photo Booths.   Individual tickets are available for $150, tickets for two are $275, and a table for eight is $1,100. Sponsorship opportunities are also available, starting at $1,000.

Both personal and corporate donations to Naples Classical Academy are tax deductible, greatly needed and appreciated.   While Naples Classical receives an allocation of state dollars for each student, this funding is only a portion of the amount that district-run schools receive. To account for the $2,000-$3,000 gap per student, Naples Classical must fundraise.   Scheduled to open in August for the 2021-22 school year, Naples Classical Academy is a new tuition-free classical curriculum K-12 charter school at 10270 Immokalee Road, just east of Collier Boulevard in North Naples.   For more information, visit Naples Classical Academy at
