It was a day of immense gratitude. Of celebration alongside friends, family, and community. Of reflection on past challenges and future promises.
After a two-year hiatus, we were thrilled to bring the Red & White Ball back to the Sonoma Plaza on August 27. We welcomed over 1,200 supporters and community members to this special evening in honor of our local schools.
The most recent event looked a bit different from years past. Before the SVEF team began planning the Red & White Ball, we paused to reflect on everything our community has been through since the start of the global pandemic – especially our local schools and their dedicated teachers.
Throughout the pandemic, teachers and school staff have been the essential workers on behalf of our children. To thank them and give the entire community a chance to honor their dedication, we flipped the script on the Red & White Ball.
On that special night in August, we gathered our Sonoma Valley community to celebrate and thank the many people who are essential to our public schools and the well being of our local students: teachers, staff, parents, volunteers, and donors who give to the Sonoma Valley Education Foundation
Throughout the evening, together we learned about the amazing things happening at local schools. We enjoyed a live program complete with performances by students, while picnicking and sipping a glass of wine. We danced the night away under the stars.
Most importantly, we showed our support for our schools and demonstrated that we are UNIFIED on behalf of our students. And it was such a successful reimagining of the event, we’re going to do it all again on August 26, 2023 – so SAVE THE DATE and see you there!
Save the Date for the Red & White Ball!
