About the Night on the Town Gala

The Harker School is a private, independent preschool-grade 12 school in San Jose, Calif. In the words of Head of School Chris Nikoloff, "We're tremendously proud of our century-old tradition of excellence in education, and the international recognition our students, faculty and programs have earned. We believe the best way to prepare our students is to provide the best academic and extracurricular programs possible."

Our annual fundraising gala, Night on the Town, brings together members of our community for an elegant night of fun and socializing, all for a good cause. All proceeds go toward Harker's general endowment and general scholarship endowment.
