– THE BASH –
Saturday, September 8, 2017
Mark Your Calendar NOW for the annual PEF BASH Gala taking place on Saturday, September 8th!
This year’s 2017 PEF BASH, supporting the mission of the Petaluma Educational Foundation (PEF), guarantees to be another legendary night of dancing, dining and auctions benefiting all 38 K-12 public, not-for-profit and charter schools in the Petaluma area.
Guests will be in awe as they enter the creatively transformed venue to raise funds as a community benefiting PEF’s mission to enrich and enhance the academic experience of each and every one of our 13,000 students. Starting with signature cocktails, a super-silent auction and Wine Wall raffle, the night continues with a live auction offering an opportunity to bid on the most sought after packages featuring once-in-a-lifetime experiences, to all-time favorite culinary and excursion auction lots, takes place during the elegant sit-down dinner portion of the evening. All this leads to the gala’s highlight when the essence of the night’s message about financially supporting the effort to elevate the educational opportunities for every student leads to the 450+ guests collectively raising their paddles pledging support to all Petaluma students, who benefit from PEF’s Impact Grant program. One hundred percent (100%) of the pledges during the Fund the Future paddle raise go to support the foundation’s annual grant program
Live music will add to the night’s electric ambiance. All-inclusive tickets ($150.00 pp until August 1st, $175.00/pp until September 1st) are available by contacting the PEF Office at (707) 778-5063. PEF’s Online BASH Auction in August provides everyone the opportunity, near and far, to bid in support of local education in advance of the benefit gala.
