Annual Auction

Please mark your calendar for Greene Towne’s 36th Annual Auction on Friday, May 20, 2022!

We are so excited to invite you to join us in person and outdoors at Victory Brewing Company – Philadelphia from 6-10pm on Friday, May 20, 2022.

Please also join us in the morning of Saturday, May 14, 2022 (rain date Sunday, May 15, 2022) at Sister Cities Park for our 2nd Annual Gallery Walk, where families will have a chance to preview each classroom’s artwork up for bid. The event will culminate in a live performance from children’s entertainer (and longstanding GTMS friend), Mr. David Perry!

Please visit to purchase your tickets, or to make a donation to the auction. Thank you for your support!

Since 1966, Greene Towne (the first Montessori school in Center City Philadelphia) has provided an exceptional early education experience for children through its toddler, preschool, kindergarten and summer camp programs. Proceeds from the Annual Auction are dedicated to financial aid, faculty professional development, and educational materials. Your support enables the school to remain a strong, vibrant part of the Center City community.

“My daughter Sophie started at Greene Towne midway through the 2018-19 school year. As we approached the tall gates that stood outside of West, I could feel a palpable energy from my daughter. The fear I had of our little girl being too young to start school (we had initially planned to send her the following year) was quickly erased when Ms. Erika grabbed Sophie’s hand. She never looked back.

Fast forward to the present day, Sophie and our son Bo are both in Primary. Greene Towne is not just a school for us, it has become an incredible community. We are so fortunate to be a part of it.

When Sarah asked me if I’d like to volunteer as one of the co-chairs for last year’s auction, I was honored to accept the role. I believe high quality PreK and K education should be available to as many people as possible. As a fundraiser, the auction helps bring people of more diverse backgrounds into the GTMS community. It’s also one heck of a party!”
