Festival of Friends Invitation

You are invited to our biggest fundraiser of the year, the Festival of Friends Gala, April 12 beginning at 6pm. The gala is a fun evening of food, live and silent auctions and entertainment, all to raise money for student activities at Metro.

Families will receive a paper and email invitation – be sure to pass these along to friends and family who may be interested in attending.

In addition, you may help in the following ways:

  • The committee is looking for student musicians to provide background music during the silent auction (guitar, violin, keyboard, etc). To be considered, email Mrs. Burgett and include information on the instrument and style of music you play. (Individual musicians preferred; no bands or vocalists needed).
  • Each student is asked to contribute toward a basket for the auction. Advisories have selected themes, so check with your child for the items that are needed.
  • Volunteers are needed for the event. Visit the following link to sign up:
