This year’s annual gala event to support the Montessori School of BG will be themed the Ruby Redux!
As many of you are aware, COVID concerns caused the school to have to cancel last year’s Ruby Jubilee
themed gala, which was coined as a celebration of the school’s 40 th anniversary. Unfortunately, we still
can’t celebrate in person but we’re calling for a Ruby Redux and hosting a virtual reverse raffle in place
of the annual in-person event.
Tickets will go on sale starting Feb 1 st for the Ruby Redux Reverse Raffle online drawing on March 6,
2021. Tickets will be $50 each and all the proceeds from the event go directly to support the
educational needs of our students. There will be multiple prize winners through the evening with a
$2,000 grand prize awarded to the last ticket standing. Only 200 tickets are available for this event, so
make sure you don’t miss out!
Over the upcoming weeks our MSBG community will have the chance to participate in several Ruby
Challenges where you’ll have an opportunity to showcase your Mustang spirit! For more information
about the event or sponsorship opportunties please check your emails, Friday Features and our MSBG
Thank you for supporting our annual fundraiser and be on the lookout for those Ruby Challenges!
What is the Ruby Redux Reverse Raffle?
The Ruby Redux Reverse Raffle is fundraiser to support MSBG. Each year, the school hosts an annual spring gala with a themed event. Due to social distancing requirements, this year’s gala will be a virtual reverse raffle. The name Ruby Redux is a play on last year’s gala (themed the Ruby Jubilee) that was cancelled due to COVID. 2020 marked the 40th anniversary for MSBG, so the “Ruby” is in honor of the Ruby anniversary and the “Redux” is the school’s chance at a do-over to celebrate
How does a reverse raffle work?
Only 200 tickets will be sold for this event. All tickets will be placed into the raffle. A software program will randomly pull tickets one-by-one. If your ticket is pulled, you are out of the raffle. The last ticket not pulled wins the grand prize.
