All Things GALA

Oak Farm Montessori School - Tall Oak Gala - February 27th

What a wonderful evening it will be...

Welcome to the first edition of All Things Gala 2016! This will be your weekly spot for updates, sneak peak at auction items and any other "need to knows" for the big event.

Invitations have been mailed and RSVPs are coming in! We look forward to having you join us for the 9th annual Tall Oak Gala on February 27th at the Mirro Center on the campus of Parkview Regional Medical Center.

A few things that are new and different:

  • We love having grandparents and other family members attend the Gala. Please feel free to extend an invitation to your friends and family. We did not send grandparents formal invitations this year.
  • RSVPs and payments will all be made on line. Our secure site allows you to make individual, couples or group reservations.

You can visit the Oak Farm website/parent resources/Tall Oak Gala to make your reservations or visit

Should you have any questions regarding reservations or seating for the Gala, please contact Anna Outten:

Why attend the Gala?

When people hear the word Gala, they often think formal and stuffy. We prefer the words "casual elegance". The Gala is the primary fundraiser for the school and the evening is designed as an opportunity for parents, faculty and staff to spend time together in a social setting and work together to raise funds for Oak Farm Montessori School.

Over the next few weeks, we will share Gala insights and don't forget...the sneak peaks for the ever popular classroom items will start next week.

How can you help?

We are so excited about the many items that we will have available during the silent auction this year. However, we are still in need of items or gift cards to complete some auction packages. Some items that would be helpful:

  • Gift cards for family friendly activities (Sky Zone, movies, lazer tag, etc)
  • Tickets/passes to local events
  • Gift cards for meals or fuel

While experiences (such as movie & dinner) are wonderful, we welcome individual items that can be combined with other donated items to create an auction package. Please contact Kim Davidson with any questions. She can be reached at 260-449-1514 or
