Next Friday, October 24, 2014, the Montessori School of Maui will present its signature fundraising event: Ghoulin Rouge.

This year’s event theme, Haunted Prom, invites guests 21 and over to don a costume and (gasp!) return to the world of their high school prom.

Attendees can anticipate an evening of “boutique hand-crafted cocktails” by Garnish Events, live entertainment from Valerie the Vibe Goddess and a meal created by Three’s catering.

The comfort food-focused menu features:

  • Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog
  • Garlic and Truffle-Parmesan Tater Tots
  • Tempura fried mahi mahi filets
  • Hamakua Mushroom and swiss sliders
  • Fried mac-n-cheese balls
  • Soba salad
  • Ocean salad
  • Triple chocolate mac nut brownies
  • Ice cream sundaes

“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,” commented Head of School René Anderson-Vorfeld.  “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.”

In addition to food, drinks and dancing, guests are invited to don a costume and compete for a “Maui Staycation to die for” while checking out the many options at the silent auction.

Tickets to Ghoulin Rouge are $85 per person.

The Montessori School of Maui was founded in 1978 and provides a comprehensive curriculum for young people from 18 months through the 8th grade. 

The Montessori teaching methodology is uniquely based upon observation, peer learning, tactile learning materials and intrinsic motivation. This year, the school notes that it is “pleased to be serving over 260 young people.”
