We were fully prepared to launch the second iteration of our fierce award-winning talent battle, Showdown Montclair, when we realized that we are already in a Showdown. 

Amidst a global pandemic and the uprising of a national movement for racial justice, we are deep in the fight to provide quality education and whole-child support for all of the children in our town.  

It is fair to say we LOVE a good competition. MFEE’s FundRacers and our past Showdown brought out the beast in our participants (and our organizers)!

But as we shoulder this current uphill climb together, now is not the time to compete. Now is not the time to Showdown. Now is the time to SHOW UP.

This November, MFEE presents ShowUP Montclair - an inspiring, interactive evening of local and exceptional performers and stories that will highlight the power of the arts to uplift the community and the power of the arts to empower and support the emotional and educational growth of our students. 

Please join us on November 7th ---- as we highlight the incredible talent in Montclair and share some of the success stories of our schools. Come see about Arts Open Hearts, our initiative to provide programming for our students’ social, emotional, and mental health through spoken word coaching, ballroom dance residencies and other innovative educational ideas we have and will continue to fund and cultivate.  

And don't miss the exclusive pre-party event - Mix it Up before you ShowUP!  Enjoy an exclusive private pre-performance, and because we always need a little more competition, join an interactive cocktail mixing battle and help decide the winner,

We have done it before. Let’s do it again. Let’s show up for the kids of Montclair.
