Calling All Wine Lovers!

Back by popular demand, the Wine Toss will be making its triumphant return to our annual gala, the Spring Fling! What makes this game so much fun? Wine! Lots and lots of wine!

To make this event the best that it can be, we would greatly appreciate it if families could raid their "wine cellars" and donate at least one bottle of your favorite vintage - it could be a fancy Syrah or a not-so-fancy Chardonnay - a wide variety of tasty wines is our goal (bottles only - no boxed wines, please - while oftentimes delicious, they don't work so well in a wine toss).

Simply leave your donation in the front office and log one volunteer hour for your family's wine contribution. How cool is that?

Host a party
We are looking for a few more fun folks to host MdTL's "Let's Play" Activities (formerly known as Signup Parties). These are events for adults or kids (or both!) organized and sponsored by MdTL parents, and a limited number of slots are available to MdTL's families and friends to participate. All proceeds raised go back to MdTL.

To get those creative juices flowing, here are just a few popular events from years past:
  • Dad's Poker Night: A night of cards and delicious BBQ for the guys.
  • Amazing Race: Teams of 2 raced around Novato, participating in a variety of challenges.
  • Bocce Tournament and Italian Picnic: Hosted at the Bocce Courts on B Street in San Rafael, teams of 2 competed in a pool play tournament for the coveted title of "Bocce's Best", while feasting on Italian nibbles and sipping wine.
  • Little Ladies Tea Party: Little ladies were treated to an afternoon of elegance and whimsy as they enjoyed tea and cookies in a beautiful outdoor setting.
  • Kids Pirate Party: A young group of buccaneers enjoyed a pizza lunch and were entertained by Capt'n Jack Spareribs.
As you can see, our past activities have been both elaborate and simple, but unique and fun is the real name of the game here! And some hosts were able to incorporate donations into their gathering. If you have an idea for an activity you'd like to host, contact Rika Gopinath.
