4/30/11 – A Montessori Night’s Dream: Second Annual Silent Auction

Second Annual Silent Auction

April 30th 7 to 10 PM

North Hall of Eastern Market

Join us for an evening of fun and entertainment with live music, hors d’oeuvres, an open wine and beer bar and a small live auction featuring a very entertaining auctioneer, all of this fun for a low price of $25 a ticket.

The Silent Auction will feature Walt Disney World tickets, theatre tickets, restaurant and retail gift certificates, country weekend retreats, and many more items.

The auction is our single largest annual fundraiser, and our goal is to raise $30,000 to fund Montessori materials and other special classroom necessities, and an affordable, quality aftercare program, which are not currently supported within the DCPS budget for the Montessori Program.

As a result of its two decades of success, the Montessori program is expanding to serve more pre-school students as well as 11-year-old (5th grade) students for the first time. In 2011-2012, the program will be solely housed in the Logan School Building, currently under renovation. Community support through fundraising and partnerships is more vital than ever.

If you are interested in donating an auction item or becoming a sponsor of A Montessori Night’s Dream, please contact Susan Drake, auction co-chair, at sddrake@comcast.net.
