Once upon a time... there was an Enchanted Gala.
Storybook characters mingled, danced, ate and drank. Orpheus, Hades and Eurydice took to the stage. A princess flew to the moon. Guests travelled home with delight in their hearts. And we all got to experience some of the magic of the Mountain Laurel Waldorf School education - in which children are captivated by and learn through stories from around the world.
With community support, we exceeded our goals for fun-raising and fundraising.
Over $22,000 raised - in ticket sales, donations, sponsorships and auction purchases
Over 100 attendees - including alumni, parents, grandparents, board members, teachers, community friends and supporters
Over 90 auction items sold - including handcrafted treasures, one-of-a-kind experiences, and opportunities to support local business
