Middleburg Montessori School announces it's holding its 12th annual Art of the Piedmont charity auction on Friday evening, May 19th, 2023, 6 to 8pm at Slater Run Vineyards, 1500 Crenshaw Road, Upperville, VA in the spectacularly beautiful Piedmont countryside.

The event raises financial support for Middleburg Montessori School and provides a forum for many local talented artists in the area. Art of the Piedmont volunteers have been working on modernizing and adding fun features to help celebrate this, the 12th year auction, which coincides with Middleburg Montessori School’s 42nd year of operation. In keeping with years past Covid friendly platform we will once again offer a week-long virtual auction via Better World for eager bidders and “out of towners” or those who are unable to attend in person. Early bidding will be a week long event virtually beginning Friday May 12th, 2023 and continuing into our in person Gallery, Friday May 19th, 2023, 6:00-8:00 PM.

The Auction Reception will feature works of fine art by a talented, professional group of local artists, and the proceeds will be divided evenly between the Middleburg Montessori School and the artists, thus supporting both the school’s nonprofit mission and the local art community. Slater Run Vineyards is opening areas of its beautiful winery to give guests a personal and one time only experience. Ticket price is all inclusive with Slater Run wine that will compliment our palate pleasing appetizers. The delicious and beautiful menu was hand selected for its most delicious and crowd pleasing diversity including but not limited to local farm fresh pork and beef, seafood, caviar and vegetarian options.

The Art of the Piedmont has been raising financial support for Middleburg Montessori School for 12 years. Thanks to the determination and dedication of a few parents and local community members, Art of the Piedmont was an idea turned reality that has continued to grow support for this 501(c)(3) non-profit school. Middleburg Montessori School has been serving families in our community for 41 years and uses these funds in an effort to serve as many children as possible, all while meeting each and every child’s developmental needs. Last year's event brought in $35,000. It is of the utmost importance to MMS to support all families in attending montessori schools. Art of the Piedmont is our largest fundraiser and allows us to continue supporting 52% of our students with financial aid. The Art of the Piedmont has raised over $146,000 for the school while supporting our local artists and community the past 11 years.

Come out and show support to a wonderful cause and have a fabulous evening in the countryside.
