Luau & Silent Auction 2018

Fundraiser for the OWM Elementary Playground Renovation

One World Montessori School’s Luau and Silent Auction features incredible performances of Traditional Polynesian dances  by the elementary students, enthusiastic drumming by the after school Bucketeers group, delicious food by Golden Harvest catering, children’s activities, and an exciting Silent Auction.

This event will be held on Thursday, June 7, 2018 from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the One World Montessori Elementary campus located at 3635 Pearl Avenue, San Jose, CA 95136. The Luau/Silent Auction will help raise much needed funds to provide outdoor equipment for our elementary students’ playground. All the proceeds will go directly to the school’s playground project. The project includes plans for student gardening, a small fruit tree orchard, shade trees, outdoor nature studies, nature art projects, a walking labyrinth, as well as a new climbing structure with a safety pad underlayment allowing accessibility for all children.

In addition to raising money for the elementary playground renovation, the evening is a chance for One World families and friends to enjoy a pleasant time immersed in the feeling of community that has become One World over the years.

You can buy your Luau dinner tickets for $20.00 (up to 2 years old free) from any OWM Office Manager: Gioia Ingram, [email protected], Julia Arndt, [email protected], or Pascale Marion, [email protected].

Silent Auction

In addition to being a Luau and community gathering, we are hosting a silent auction which is our largest and most important fundraising event of the year. The proceeds from tonight’s auction will provide outdoor equipment for our elementary student’s playground. Our operating budget is limited, and only thanks to our supportive parent community and our generous donors are we able to continuously make improvements to the school.

Our local and extended business donors, as well as our personal friends and families, have come through with an amazing selection of auction items. Whether this is your first auction or you are a veteran bargain hunter, the “rules” are the same: bid up, bid often, knowing it all comes back to benefit our school and our children.
