So Many Reasons to Celebrate!

Hello, friends of Montessori Northwest.


     One of my favorite responsibilities as MNW’s Director of Fundraising & Community Education is organizing our annual fundraising auction and dinner, the Celebration of Light. From its humble inception nearly a decade ago, this event has grown into a magical evening of laughter, community, and fabulous auction items—and a great opportunity to support the dynamic work of Montessori Northwest.

     This year’s event on Friday, January 24th, is really shaping into something special. Not only will it be our biggest and most glamorous Celebration (hello, Melody Ballroom!) but it will also feature several new treats.

     The donations are still pouring in (care to contribute?) but here are just a few of the exciting events and items ready and waiting:
  • Who-Done-It Mystery Party
  • Zumba, Yoga, Belly and Bollywood Dancing Lessons
  • A Trip to Disneyland and Original Handmade Montessori Materials
  • Billiard Games, Winery Tours, and Karaoke
  • Gift Certificates galore!
  • And much, much more…
Your participation is essential in our ability to continue offering quality AMI teacher training, which brings us to this year’s special appeal. We will be raising funds to offer Tuition Assistance to people who would otherwise be unable to attend our programs – more Montessori for more people!

I look forward to seeing you on January 24th at the 9th Annual Celebration of Light Dinner and Auction. I’m buying a handful of tickets as holiday gifts this year and look forward to sharing this special evening with all of you.
