The Montclair Community Pre-K (MCPK) is hosting a Celebration Gala fundraiser on Thursday, May 10, at the Montclair Art Museum. The school seeks sponsors, ad buyers and auction items for this upcoming fundraiser, which will benefit the school scholarship program. The event celebrates the graduation of MCPK’s first pre-k class from high school this June.
This fun, dance party evening will include light dinner, open bar and live and silent auctions. The auctioneers for the event are Montclair’s own Tyler Mathisen, CNBC anchor, and his wife, Joann Mathisen, a producer of The Today Show. Tyler Mathisen is a veteran MCPK event auctioneer, back by popular demand from the MCPK fundraiser last year.
The MCPK scholarship program provides tuition assistance to Montclair families with a mission to provide high quality preschool education to any child regardless of economic standing. Since its inception, the MCPK has provided over $3 million in financial assistance to Montclair families. The school provides 55-100 families with financial assistance each year; most of the children go on to the Montclair public schools.
