Philomath Montessori School will host the Love of Learning benefit concert from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday, March 16, at the Oddfellows Hall, 223 SW Second St., Corvallis. Cassandra Robertson will open the show at 7:30, followed by Space Neighbors at 9 p.m.

Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door, and include heavy appetizers by Block 15. Beverages donated by Block 15 and 2 Towns Cider will be available for purchase, and the evening will also feature a 50/20/30 raffle. All proceeds will benefit the school, which is a nonprofit providing education for children 2½ to 6 years old in Benton and Linn counties.

Philomath Montessori has held a Love of Learning fundraising auction for the past 15 years, but under the leadership of new school director Jessica Neebe decided to switch gears to a concert in hopes of connecting more with the community.

“For years, PhMS has held a spectacular silent auction event organized and run by our dedicated parent volunteers. To mix it up this year, we are putting together a funky night out within the broader community, featuring local music, food and drink,” said Neebe, now in her second year as head of the school. “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.”
