Archbishop Mitty Hosts Black and Gold Gala


This November, Archbishop Mitty High School (AMHS) will host an evening of music and laughter with comedian Louie Anderson during their annual Black and Gold Gala, which benefits the school’s general endowment.

The annual event started in 1992, with Ray Charles charming audiences with his improvisational style and smooth keyboard skills. Over the years, entertainers have included Sinbad, Jay Leno, and the Smothers Brothers, but the students who take the stage from the AMHS Performing Arts Department always steal the show.

“I think Black and Gold is a wonderful celebration of our community, and it’s a great chance to showcase what Mitty does best – to put our best foot forward,” said Executive Director for Advancement Mason Kimont.

This year, the event will be held November 11, at the Fairmont Hotel in downtown San Jose. The show will be modeled after a late night sketch comedy show that features music from Lenny Kravitz, a tribute to the glam rock of the 80s, and some tunes from contemporary artists like Justin Timberlake. The guest entertainer will be three-time Emmy Award winner Louie Anderson. More than 65 students will join Anderson on stage, including members of the AMHS Jazz Band, The Royals dance team, the Pardon My French sketch comedy troupe, and Exodus liturgical rock band.

Last year, the show sold out with an audience of more than 950 people. Don’t miss the fun this year.
