Intercultural Montessori Language School Gala
March 21, 2014

Dear Intercultural Families and Friends,

As you may know, Intercultural’s 7th Annual Spring Gala and auction is just around the corner.

On Saturday, May 3, 2014, Intercultural Montessori Language School will be sponsoring our largest fundraising event of the year, a relaxed adult evening of cocktails, hors d’ oeuvres and live entertainment. This is the only event during the year that the entire Intercultural community (parents, staff, teachers, board members, and alumni families) will gather and enjoy each other’s company. It will be held at the Crowne Plaza Chicago Metro Hotel – 733 West Madison, Chicago, IL 60661.

There is still time to support Intercultural’s very special programs! Here’s how you can help:

  • Make a donation to this year’s silent auction
  • Place an ad in the Gala’s program
  • Become a sponsor for our event

Auction Donations:

The silent auction will be prominently showcased during the cocktail reception and throughout the evening. Your commitment to Intercultural will be appropriately acknowledged in the Gala program. This auction item donation may come directly from you, or from a vendor that you may be associated with personally or professionally. We ask that you donate your auction item by Friday, March 28th. 

Program Advertisements: 

You also have an opportunity to place an ad in the Gala’s program. Families may use this media to place an advertisement for their own business, or for family members to send a message to their children and/or the teachers/staff at Intercultural. You may also get an advertisement from any vendor that you are associated with personally or professionally.


We gladly welcome anyone who wishes to sponsor our event, and your sponsorship will be acknowledged in this year’s program. All premier sponsorships will be acknowledged in the following categories:

  • Bronze:      $1000    Listing on program + 2 gala tickets
  • Silver:        $2,500   Listing on program + 6 gala tickets
  • Gold:         $5,000   Listing on program + 10 gala tickets
  • Platinum    $10,000  Listing on program + 20 gala tickets

The deadline to advertise or sponsor has been extended to Friday, April 4th. If you, your employer, or your business requires documentation for your tax deductible donation, our Business Manager, Kimberly Norwood will be glad to supply any necessary documentation or receipts.

All Gala proceeds will help Intercultural cover operating expenses that are not fully covered by tuition. Your generosity is appreciated! We hope you will support Intercultural and help ensure that this very special school can continue to thrive. 

We also hope that we will see you at the event and enjoy an evening with the entire Intercultural community. The link to purchase tickets will be available early next week.
