The ever-popular annual TMS Spring Gala & Auction will take place on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at the magnificent Manufacturers’ Golf & Country Club at 511 Dreshertown Road in Fort Washington, PA. This event includes cocktails, a sit down dinner, valet parking, silent and live auctions, and for the first time, live music and vocals. We hope to see as many members of our community there as possible for our only parent-run fundraiser and biggest social event of the year, so book a babysitter and come help support our school and community!

Click on the above link if you would like to do any of the following:

– donate a product, gift certificate, or service – feel free to think outside the box! Some of our best items in the past have been services or lessons provided by talented members of our community, and you may be surprised by your employer or favorite business’ willingness to contribute.

– become a Bronze, Gold, Silver, or Platinum sponsor of our event! Includes advertising in our program book, 2 tickets to the event, and name recognition on our website and at the event.

One of the easiest ways to help support our event is to visit our Amazon wishlist (click on the big orange button to the left) and have an item(s) sent directly to the school to fill one of our unique themed baskets! The baskets are always a hit during our silent auction, and this option could not be easier for those who’d like to help but are uncertain how best to do so.

Highlights of This Year's Event

Classroom Projects

Every TMS student contributes to a classroom project put out by each class. These stunning & unique works of art are an unforgettable way to commemorate this special time in your TMS student’s life, along with the friendships made in class.

Coming soon will be photos of some of this year’s projects. They are always the most popular items during our Live Auction!

Special Appeal

Our Live Auction ends with a Special Appeal where TMS requests monetary donations towards a specific goal. This year, invitees will be asked to consider donating towards two projects – improving the Outdoor Experience for TMS students across all ages, and Observational Glass for Children’s House classrooms.

OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE FOR ALL AGES: Outdoor open-ended play is crucial to a child’s development, both socially and physically. Help us to provide additional inspiration for play to each of our outdoor areas: Toddler, Children’s House and Elementary.

CHILDREN’S HOUSE OBSERVATIONAL GLASS: Ideally, Children’s House parents should be able to observe their children at work unnoticed to ensure a true view into a child’s classroom experience – Help us retrofit our Children’s House classrooms with one-way glass viewing.

Additional details will be provided during the Live Auction!

Live Music & Vocals by Cherry Lane

We are thrilled to be hosting this exciting Bucks County based duo during the evening – a first for our event!
