One Big Night (OBN) Annual Gala: "Diner en Blanc"
Please plan to join us for our community-building event, Diner en Blanc ("Dinner in White"), on Saturday, April 14, 2018!
For the past two years, OBN has been an opportunity to fundraise for our extraordinary school, as well as to build community between parents, teachers and staff. We have celebrated together and supported our students by fostering connections to each other and the school.
After the Santa Rosa firestorm, we all have found ourselves regrouping. Some in our community are making a tremendous effort starting over from scratch; some are grieving loss; some are housing friends; and all are doing what we can to support our neighbors.
This year, at St. John School we are refocusing on community with One Big Night: Diner en Blanc on Saturday, April 14, 2018. The evening will be modeled after the first Diner en Blanc in 1988, when a group of friends in Paris met for an elegant outdoor dinner--dressed in white so they could find each other. Since then, more than 70 cities around the world have replicated this special meal: friends and strangers bringing a bottle of wine and dining together--relishing the community where they live.

Please join us on Saturday evening, April 14, 2018 at St. John School for dinner, live music, dancing, and, above all, community-building. Together, we will ensure that our school remains a strong, healthy space for children to thrive and families to flourish as we all rebuild together.
Further details and information on purchasing tickets is forthcoming, so stay tuned to this page and our school weekly newsletter.
We look forward to seeing you there!
