The evening of Saturday, August 26th, we’re transforming the Sonoma Plaza into a hub of celebration. Families, neighbors, and community members will unite to show our love for Sonoma Valley’s public schools. Get inspired by the hard work and dedication that go into creating exceptional educational experiences in Sonoma Valley.

Proceeds from the event will create our Classroom Grants fund for the school year, allowing teachers and staff to receive up to $1,000 to help cover the costs of supplies, field trips, and other classroom needs.  Grab your friends and family, and get ready for an evening of fun, inspiration, and community spirit!
