"I've come for several years now and it's the best party in town.  I love the new casino theme.  It's like taking a quick trip to Vegas for the night, but it's just in Swansboro!"

Since 2006, the annual auction has raised approximately $300,000 for Montessori Children's School in Jacksonville enabling the school to do the following:

  • ​​Build the new Elementary Education building
  • Expand the primary and elementary programs to offer an additional primary aged classroom and classes through the 6th grade
  • Implement the Environmental Education program for students ages three years old through 6th grade
  • Fund the first phase of PROJECT GREENSPACE, an initiative that focuses on developing natural learning and outdoor play environments.  The research done in this field on the benefits of natural outdoor play and providing a view of green space from the indoors is compelling: improved cognition and attention, decreasing ADHD and rates of obesity!


For 2014, funds raised at the auction will be used to develop the first scholarship program at MCS.  It will be used to further fund PROJECT GREENSPACE with continued development of the Elementary outdoor environment!
