Night Out

Food, drink and conversation with a fun exciting atmosphere.

Whether you’re a serial auction-attendee or a first-timer, we have some special touches in store for this year’s event!

First of all…you do NOT have to bid on auction items to attend the gala. You MIGHT and probably WILL see some “Ooooo, I want that” items or baskets, but you are not under any obligation to bid.

Our auctioneer, once again, is the highly entertaining David Helmer, of Braun & Helmer Auctioneers. If you haven’t seen him in action… you’re in for a treat.

Attire: No formal dress code. Gentlemen will be most comfortable in a jacket/blazer, a suit, or something in between. Ladies will be most comfortable in dress pants or a dress.

Raffle, Silent, and Live Auction

Businesses supporting Go Like the Wind Montessori through their generous donations.  Donated items will be mindfully selected for ticket sales, silent auction or live auction.

  • Leslie Science Center
  • Henry Ford Museum
  • Moonwink’s Café


Food: We will have a two-entrée buffet with all the trimmings and desserts. The complimentary bar opens a half hour before dinner, so you’ll have time to mingle and check out our display of items before enjoying a wonderful dinner with your friends.

Purchase Tickets

Tickets: $45 a piece, which just covers our food & beverage costs. We want
as many of our GLTW parents (and friends!) to attend as possible, so we’re
holding down the cost to you, while still providing a memorable evening out!
You can order your tickets (and specify any dietary restrictions).
