Thank You for Going Wild for Hershey!

Thank You for Going Wild for Hershey!

Dear Friends of Hershey Montessori School,

Saturday, April 27th, members of Hershey Montessori School’s community gathered for a very special,  fun-filled evening in support of Hershey Montessori School. Thank you all who were able to join us!

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo provided an exotic backdrop to our glamorously decorated room filled with many current and former parents, alumni, Montessori colleagues and community friends.  It was delightful to see so many new friends and families as well!  There were some special guests including a Kookaburra, an armadillo and two very wild giraffes!

In addition to the warmth and friendship shared by our guests, the evening was truly impactful for Hershey Montessori School.  Thanks to the generosity of donors through sponsorships, ticket sales, bidding on auction items, the dessert dash and the call to the heart for Financial Aid, our initial figures showed that we raised over $120,000!

The success of the evening would not have been realized without the amazing leadership, creativity and passionate work from our event committee.  We are grateful to our dedicated volunteer families.

All proceeds go directly to benefit our students.  Hershey purposefully keeps tuition as low as possible to increase access to a wide range of families—”more Montessori for more children”  The tuition covers only 75% of our school’s operations.  The funds raised at Go Wild for Hershey are critical in continuing to provide optimal environments for our children to thrive.  We couldn’t continue to provide and enhance Hershey Montessori School’s unique, successful programs as a model for schools all over the world without the help and support from our devoted families and friends, and for this we are truly thankful!

With gratitude,

And thank you to all our parent volunteers for the tasty treats and refreshments. It was a joyful morning!  You may visit our Facebook page to view additional photos.
