The game plan is set, the invitations have been mailed, and numerous auction items are rolling in. The Spring Fundraiser Committee is excited to present an evening of great fun wrapped around our basketball theme — all to benefit West Side Montessori.
Montessori March Madness is Saturday, March 8, at the Fifth Third Center located in downtown Toledo at One SeaGate. Please note the event’s tip-off is now 7 p.m. due to the school’s participation at the Destination Imagination tournament earlier the same day.
This annual signature event is a wonderful celebration. It is an opportunity to support West Side Montessori all while enjoying a night of fun with friends! Montessori March Madness has something for everyone, whether you are on the court or in the VIP suites – everyone is welcome. Visit wsmcspringfundraiser.com to purchase your tickets (and a tuition raffle ticket, too).
Here is a list of activities for the evening:
- Fund-A-Wish: This is an opportunity to give a direct donation to the WSM Natural Playground development at either the Toledo and Perrysburg campus. Donations levels start at $25.
- NCAA Bracket Entertainment: Purchase your favorite team to add to our bracket game and watch who makes it to the championship game. The final winner will receive two tickets to the NCAA Men’s Midwest Regional finals in Indianapolis and a two-night stay at the JW Marriott in Indy.
- Games: Play this interactive fun 50/50 raffle and try your luck at heads or tails for only $25. In as few as five flips of a coin, your odds are as good as anyone’s to take the jackpot. The last person standing wins an iPad.
- Grub Grab Board: Visit our Grub Grab board to “grab” gift certificates to some of Toledo’s fantastic restaurants.
- Silent Auction: Individual items and packages with values starting at $25 will be available. Items include: a stay at Kalahari; private dinner for six in your home designed by Chef Josh of Inverness Country Club; a fly fishing trip; a bottle of 2010 Opus One; and many more.
- Live Auction: Bids will be flying at this year’s live auction. Items include: classroom-made treasures; trips around the country such as Sonoma or Silverthorne; and even a dinner at Chef Nixon’s table at Element 112.
