'Keeping It Local' Student Fund Raiser
Mountain Oak School does an annual signature fundraiser that support the school’s general fund and each year a specific highlighted program.
Music for Wonder
Music for Wonder is an annual fundraiser where a variety of accomplished Arizona bands, including the internationally acclaimed blues band—SHRI—, The Cheektones- a Prescott favorite, and the Arizona Highway band, - Major Lingo- have performed. All the money raised at the “Music For Wonder” event is designated for the arts curriculum at Mountain Oak School.
Three years ago, the “Music for Wonder” concert at the Elk’s theatre brought in $5000. It featured Liz Story and filled the Elk’s theatre to standing room only. Ines Vitols and Grace Campbell, father and mother of a fifth grader at Mountain Oak were the director and producer of the Music for Wonder event. “Each year I’d like to focus on a different theme" says Ines. Last year’s theme was a family open air concert. “I firmly believe that a picnic with family and friends in a beautiful spot such as Watson Lake Park and listening to good music are important for us as individuals and for the Prescott community as a whole”. Ines continued, “Music for Wonder is an outgrowth of my love for what the school offers to the community and my commitment to the beauty and inspiration of their curriculum."
