5th Annual Maude, Music, and Montessori

Cafe Maude will be open just for Armatage Montessori supporters on Monday March 10, 2014 from 6-9 pm. Tickets are $40 per person. Advance ticket sales have ended, but tickets are still available and may be purchased at the door.

The event will feature:
  • Maude's signature food
  • Beverages for purchase
  • Music by Tommy Barbarella, George Scot McKelvey, and Brian Gallagher
  • Silent auction with more great prizes, including Timberwolves tickets, custom oil paintings, massage and pilates, and more!

Volunteers Needed

Because this is a fundraiser, we also try to recruit volunteers from among the ticket holders. If you plan to attend, consider taking a short (and really fun) shift during the evening. More information about volunteer shifts on the volunteer opportunities page.

Expanded Online Auction

Our second annual online auction runs the week before the event. The teachers and staff have once again graciously donated services and special events, and the community has also stepped up with dozens of great items for bid. The auction truly has something for everyone, with some items available to the highest bidder, and others available as group incentives if a stated goal is met. The auction closed Monday, March 10th at 3:00pm. 

Proceeds Benefit Staffing at Armatage

In addition to being an enjoyable evening out, M3 is first-and-foremost a critical direct-to-school fundraiser. In the past, money raised through M3 (through ticket and beverage sales, auction proceeds, and additional donations) has enabled Principal Franks to stretch the staffing budget in remarkable ways.  M3 has allowed for expanded art and science instruction, increased associate educator direct contact hours, and has allowed band to be offered to all fourth and fifth grade students during the school day.  If you cannot attend the event or participate in the auction, but want to contribute to the cause, please consider a donation to our school fund, using this link.

Keep your eyes out for more information in the days to come, including details on auction items. Thank you for taking part in this special event. We are truly fortunate to have such wonderful support for Armatage Montessori school!
