“Speakeasy” Spring Gala – March 3rd

The 2018 “Speakeasy” Spring Gala
Saturday, March 3, 2018
6:30 to 11:00 p.m.
Columbia Performance Center
3900 Eastern Avenue

The Cincinnati Waldorf School looks forward to celebrating with you on Saturday, March 3rd! The Columbia Performance Center typically functions as a concert venue; with loads of character, it lends itself well to our speakeasy theme. This year’s event includes a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, dinner, and an expertly matched and sourced bourbon tasting featuring award-winning bourbons from some of the region’s top distilleries.

Please join us for this fun, engaging and intimate experience that will blow away notions of what a “Gala” should be! We will celebrate all things Waldorf, local, and joyful. The result is a re-dedicated sense of pride in our school and the many people, including you, that make it possible for us to offer a quality Waldorf education to our students. At evening’s end, our aim is to make everyone feel more connected to what makes the Cincinnati Waldorf School community great.

Purchase Gala tickets HERE!

One Hundred $100 Speakeasy Platinum Raffle Tickets are for sale. The winner will take home their choice from a selection of Live Auction items.

Host a Community Sign-Up Party
Community Sign-Up Parties are a wonderful way to support the school while enjoying yourself with like-minded members of the CWS community. We have a wide variety of events to appeal to every individual and family as well as every budget. If you have an idea for a party or even if you don’t have an idea but would like to host a party, please contact Joni Sherman at Look for early bird sign-up opportunities in February.

Volunteer to help before and after the event
There are many more ways to help our Gala Team in the weeks and days preceding the Gala, as well as set-up and clean-up the night of the event. Leadership and support roles still need to be filled. Keep an eye out for volunteer sign-up sheets in the CWS hallway in the coming weeks or contact Naimah Bilal with any questions, suggestions or offers of volunteer assistance. We look forward to working together with all of our community members and friends as we plan this wonderful event. Thank you!
