The Ignite Gala is St. Barnabas School’s annual premier fundraiser. It’s a fun-filled evening that includes delicious food, drinks, entertainment as well as live and silent auctions. Ignite supports the mission, vision, and initiatives of St. Barnabas School ensuring our education serves in Christian faith, service, and academic excellence as a hallmark in our community. Through past galas, we have been able to update campus security, make classroom updates, and we are in the process of creating an outdoor classroom on our beautiful and extensive campus.
Ignite Gala 2024
On Saturday, February 10, 2024, St. Barnabas School will host its 5th Annual Ignite Gala at the Hilton Garden Inn in Twinsburg. Our focus for the 2024 Ignite Gala is to update and improve our campus safety and security systems. Six years ago, with funds from our inaugural Gala, we improved our campus security. With advancements in technology since that time, it is once again time to dedicate Ignite funds to security improvements including upgrading our camera system, replacing doors, updating our PA system, replacing locks and other recommended safety upgrades.
We welcome any St. Barnabas community member that would like to be involved with Ignite! There are many opportunities to contribute, from joining a committee, soliciting advertisers, helping lead a class basket, volunteering to setup or work the night of the event, or even just attending the event and raising your paddle to support St. Barnabas School - we are grateful for any and all support!

How To Get Involved
Ignite Gala 2023
The Ignite Gala, Let's Groove Tonight, was held on Saturday, February 11, 2023 and was a GROOVY time! We raised an astounding $192,000 at this year's gala and the monies raised will go towards reimagining our Applied Arts Corridor. As St. Barnabas Parish and School expand and grow, we have the opportunity to take advantage of space not previously utilized by the school. We envision a reimagination of the space located upstairs in the west wing of the school so our students can focus on applied arts in a larger, modernized, fully utilized space. The Applied Arts Reimagination will include updated spaces for: Library, STEM/Dream Den, Music, Band, Art, and SBTV Studio. Thank you to all our sponsors, attendees, volunteers and supporters that made this event such a success!
