Bala House 50th Anniversary Gala

May 2, 2020
Levering Mill Tribute House
382 Bala Avenue, Bala Cynwyd

Bala House’s mission — “where young children discover themselves as creative, independent learners in a diverse, supportive Montessori environment” — has been the hallmark of this school for the past 50 years. Behind the Church of St. Asaph, this school educates 110 students in a space designed to encourage children to learn through Montessori materials and hands-on exploration.

Each May Bala House hosts a Bala Gala & Silent Auction to raise money to be used for improvements inside and outside the classroom. This year’s funds will go towards our tuition assistance program as well as the purchase of new teaching materials and furniture for the classrooms.

Please consider attending the gala, donating goods or services to the silent suction, advertising in our auction catalog or purchasing a sponsorship. Your support not only helps with our fundraising efforts but builds brand recognition and loyalty among the nearly 200 family and friends who will attend the Bala Gala. Donated items are featured in our auction brochure along with donor names. All donations are tax-deductible.

Questions? Please contact Advancement Director Michelle Bjork at .

How do I submit donations, ads or sponsorships?

It’s so easy! Fill out a Gift Donor form, attach it to the gift or gift certificate, and drop it off at Bala House. If you do not have the item in your possession or are turning in an ad or sponsorship, drop off the appropriate form at Bala House. We will arrange a time to pick up the donation.

Please turn in your donations, ads, sponsorships as soon as you receive them or by Friday, April 3, 2020. It takes a tremendous amount of time to process donations in time for the auction.
