Our Annual Gala

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.

Gala Silent Auction Westside Montessori School

Your generosity in supporting our 80’s Casino Night 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.

Opportunities to Make a Difference

The success of the Westside Montessori School gala depends heavily on the generosity of the parents in our community who selflessly volunteer their time. Please take a moment to review the several rewarding opportunities we have available to make a difference.




The success of our live and silent auctions depends heavily on the generosity of the parents in our community. Do you have a vacation home that could be used by the winner for a weekend or perhaps tickets to an event that you’d be willing to donate? What about some sports memorabilia? Could your business provide an item or a service? Does your family own a restaurant and could do a chef’s table dinner or a tasting? Do you have a relationship with a business or access to a person that would make for a good auction item?


Examples of past donations include:

• Weekend getaway to a destination home or timeshare
• Host an event (pool party, dinner party)
• Airline tickets
• Hotel reservations
• Event tickets
• Collectibles 
• Antiques
• Sports memorabilia
• Jewelry
• Artwork
• Gift baskets
• Wine donations
• Spa treatments
• Gift certificates
• Car detailing
• Electronics
• Business services
