10th Annual Intercultural Montessori Walk-A-Thon and Carnival
The 10th annual Intercultural Montessori Halloween Walk-A-Thon and Carnival takes place on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 9:30 am – 2:00 pm at the Oak Park Campus.The Walk-A-Thon occurs in the morning, followed by lunch and a carnival. The Walk-A-Thon is our first fundraiser of the year. Please join us and arrive in your spookiest Halloween costumes!
The annual Walk-A-Thon is a wonderful community building event providing an opportunity for the entire school to work together in support of Intercultural Montessori.
All proceeds raised for Intercultural Montessori help bridge the gap between tuition revenue and operation costs. Therefore, the charitable gifts allow the school to go the extra mile in order to fund materials/projects that otherwise could not be purchased.
This Year’s Fundraising Goal: $15,000
This year we are offering the opportunity to purchase carnival tickets in advance online. Tickets may be purchased at the event using cash or check only. By purchasing tickets online in advance, you will save time and money. Tickets purchased online will be available for pick-up at the Parent Alliance Table at the Carnival on Saturday, October 22, 2016.
