By Wendy Osher
If you’re 21 and over, and want to visit the ghost of prom past, the Ghoulin Rouge: Haunted Prom pre-Halloween fundraiser has a tiara and corsage with your name on it.
The adults-only costume party is a signature fundraiser for the Montessori School of Maui, and will be held the Friday before Halloween on Oct. 24, at the school campus.
Thomas Daubert, the Montessori School Maui’s development director guarantees gourmet pupus by Three’s catering, boutique hand-crafted libations by Garnish Events, and a live DJ dance party with Valerie the Vibe Goddess.
Costume clad revelers can compete for a “Maui staycation to die for” or bid on silent auction items fit for a haunted prom king or queen.
“We are very excited to build upon the success of last year’s fundraiser and welcome the Maui community onto our campus for this fun signature event,” said Head of School René Anderson-Vorfeld in an event announcement.
The event will be held on campus at 2933 Baldwin Avenue in Makawao from 6 to 10 p.m.
Individual tickets are $85 each and include an all-you-can-eat buffet, and full evening of entertainment. VIP Private Lounges and reserved seating with extra service are also available.
For tickets or more information, visit momi.org or call (808) 573-0374.
“We are also very grateful for the leadership of our event co-chairs Tulasi Root Dennis and Heather Haynes as they help us raise critical support for the school and make our school the place to be on Maui the Friday before Halloween,” said Anderson-Vorfeld.
The Montessori School of Maui was founded in 1978. The campus provides curriculum for kids from 18 months through the eighth grade.
School administrators say the Montessori teaching methodology is “uniquely based upon observation, peer learning, tactile learning materials and intrinsic motivation.”
With more than 260 students enrolled this year, the Montessori School of Maui prides itself on a “distinctive and remarkable” approach to education.
