Our Signature Fundraising Event
The Westside Montessori School gala is our school’s signature fundraiser and most anticipated social event of the year. You don’t want to miss it! The evening begins with cocktails and a silent auction followed by dinner, a live auction, and dancing.
Your generosity in supporting our gala dinner will enable the school to expand our science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) materials, which will allow our students to build a strong foundation for their futures in the modern world. The proceeds will also allow the integration of digital and online resources, making students’ introduction to technology an exciting exploration. In addition, the proceeds from the gala provide for materials needed to support the mission of Westside Montessori School, and enable faculty and staff the opportunity to participate in professional development and further their training in the Montessori method.
