PNA Gala Event

Our wonderful celebration of the PNA community is another way donors can support Pacific Northern Academy. This much-anticipated evening is PNA’s most important and successful fundraising event of the year. Funds raised at the auction allow us to obtain the additional support needed to enhance our facilities, secure new technologies, and offer new programs that are imperative for our students’ personal and academic growth.

Each year we depend on volunteers and their generosity. Thank you to all the people who help form our Event Committee!

For the past 25 years, Pacific Northern Academy has provided the learning atmosphere that sparks a passion – the passion that becomes a lifelong career. Your generosity helps support the next generation of leaders today!

Dear Friends, Families, and Supporters:

THANK YOU for making PNA’s 25th Anniversary Celebration such an inspirational and memorable event!  

COVID-19 has made this a difficult year for PNA and our community, but with your generous and continued support we were able to celebrate in person and our 25 Years Strong event was a resounding success!

Our annual event is the largest fundraiser for independent education in Alaska. We raised over $200,000 with 25 years of PNA families and friends gathered at the Zoo. THANK YOU!

Pacific Northern Academy was privileged to celebrate with several of our founders Dr. Beal and Ralph Eluska, and first board chair Pete Brown. Also, we were honored to hear from PNA graduates, Morgan Zinn and Claire Rhyneer who shared the difference of a PNA education! 

We were pleased to announce our 2022 Event Co-Chairs, Danica Bartow and Kari Ellsworth. We look forward to a smashing success next year with our larger community of supporters. 

We want to thank our supporters and faculty for believing in Pacific Northern Academy.  YOUR support has allowed us to celebrate 25 transformative years educating the next generation of leaders in Alaska.
