North High School is a title one school in the heart of Des Moines, Iowa. Every student attending North receives free lunch daily as a result of the socioeconomic status of the student body. The Polar Bear Gala helps to raise funds critical to assisting the school in closing the opportunity gap that exists for its students. Some schools in the metro area charge students for game warm-ups and band uniforms. Some of these schools have students who can pay their own entrance fees and for meals at competitive events. Other schools have booster clubs that foot the bill for many of the students’ needs. This is not the reality at North High School, but the booster club and school still want to provide the students at North every meaningful opportunity they can. Please support the Polar Bear Gala to support these students! Attend our dinner and silent auction, featuring live North student performances! Register at www.polarbeargala.com.
