Annual Gala

Annual Gala


Held in the spring each year, the Milwaukee Montessori School Annual Gala helps support the future of our students. We invite families, friends, and members of the community to support our mission as well as celebrate our teachers, volunteers, students, and school. At Milwaukee Montessori School’s largest social event and fundraiser of the year, we offer outstanding auction items, exquisite dining, and entertainment. There are many ways to support the MMS Annual Gala, including individual or corporate sponsorships, advertising in the Gala catalog, donating merchandise to the silent auction, or volunteering to serve on one of the many committees.
