Rise & Drive – Community Fundraiser and Festival – May 6th, 2017
Dear SSMS Families and our larger Community,
Stepping Stone Montessori School would like to invite you to be a part of our 3rd Annual Rise & Drive Festival fundraiser on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from Noon to 3:00PM at The Plaza, City of Sugar Hill. This is an effort in conjunction with community leaders such as yourself to raise awareness and funds for children’s charities. The beneficiaries for this event are Access Life America (ALA) and Atlanta Children’s Shelter.This marks our third year that SSMS has organized this benefit, in support of families and organizations in need of help and directly/indirectly working in the field of Cancer. The founders of SSMS hold childhood cancer research dear to their hearts, having lost their brother, Uday, to cancer.
The Founders of SSMS hold charity near and dear to their hearts. RISE & DRIVE is an annual community event held every year in memory of the founders’ younger brother Uday (Uday means rise) who lost his fight with cancer in November of 2012 at the age of 25.
Montessori philosophy addresses learning about character and the unity of humanity: that we are all part of one community. The SSMS founders have as a goal that the results of this effort will help assist these wonderful causes, embrace our community, create goodwill, and become further united within our community.
In this effort to give back to the community, we need your help and support. With your participation we can make our efforts count! Please stay posted for more details on how you can help us make this a success!
