A Letter from Knoxville Montessori School

by (listed at end)

Dear Cumberland County Playhouse:

Thank you for your contribution of four tickets to any theatrical show at the Cumberland County Playhouse to the Knoxville Montessori School’s 45th Anniversary Spring Gala, held on April 20th in the Back Room at Remedy Coffee in the Old City. We deeply appreciate your support for the Gala and for our school.

With your help, this year’s Gala was a great success. It was attended by over seventy parents, grandparents, staff members, alumni, and friends of the school. Participants enjoyed dinner by noted Knoxville caterer Betty Melrose and live music by Kukuly and the Gypsy Fuego, a new Knoxville band that plays Gypsy and American swing jazz with a French accent.

The Gala was very successful financially as well. Between ticket sales, ads, contributions, and the live and silent auctions, it raised over $10,000 for the KMS Building and Grounds Fund. Proceeds from the Gala will enable us to repaint the exterior of the school this summer, and they will also help us prepare for the major upgrades to your classrooms and playgrounds that we are planning for summer 2013 and 2014.

Thank you again for your support of KMS and the Gala. As one of our parents said that night, it was “The best Gala ever!” and we could not have done it without your help.

Best wishes,

Charlie Biggs
