featuring delicious food and beverages, and the chance to bid on fabulous items and raffle prizes. Proceeds support Madeira programs and provide classroom materials from technology purchases/upgrades, to arts and athletic enhancements. The Foundation also supports our PTOs, helps fund educational experiences such as the Day of Service and Global Leadership Summit, and contributes to scholarships for students and alumni.

This year's event will feature a $7,500 Reverse Raffle with an early drawing of $500, and an Ultimate Apple Package that includes a MacBook Pro, 32GB iPad Air, iPod Touch and Apple TV.

New this year is 'Dinner by the Bite'. Food stations featuring local bites will be available throughout the evening in an effort to open up some space in the room. We're offering two types of tickets:

- Reserved Table Seat ($60): As in years past, reserve individual seats or coordinate a table with a group.

- Stand-Up Table ($50): Enjoy your food, drink and conversation at high top tables. There will be stools at some of these tables, but there is no reserved seat with this ticket option.

Registration is now open at Marchtoberfest 2016, where you can also purchase raffle tickets and preview auction items. Starting March 1 you will be able to start bidding on items at the site whether you attend the auction or not. If you'd like to support the auction through a donation or sponsorship, please contact Troy Bartson at, Angie Schilling or David Eberly at =. For more about the Foundation please visit

Congratulations to our MES students who know the power of kindness and continue to show amazing acts of kindness every day!
