The Philomath Montessori School plans to host a Love of Learning benefit concert from 7 -11 p.m. Friday at the Oddfellows Hall in Corvallis.
The concert will feature Cassandra Robertson at 7:30 p.m., and Space Neighbors at 9 p.m.
Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door, and include appetizers by Block 15. Beverages donated by Block 15 and 2 Towns Cider will be available for purchase. The evening will also feature a 50/20/30 raffle.
All proceeds will benefit the school, which is a nonprofit providing education for children ages 2-1/2 to 6 in Benton and Linn counties.
For the past 15 years, the school has staged a Love of Learning fundraising auction but opted to switch gears under second-year school director Jessica Neebe in hopes of connecting more with the community.
“Our goal is to have a good time while keeping a strong presence in the community, raising funds for our mission and not overtaxing our parents with innumerable volunteer hours," Neebe said.
The Corvallis Oddfellows Hall is located at 223 SW Second St.
