The Sonoma Valley Education Foundation will again be hosting the Red and White Ball, which this year takes place on Saturday, Aug. 18, to benefit the public schools of Sonoma Valley. The ball will take place from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Sonoma Plaza, with music by Dave Martin’s House Party.
During the event, guests will dine on treats from the Sonoma Valley School Gardens and Sonoma Valley wines. As if the dancing, food and wine aren’t enough, the winning raffle ticket for the Fiat Pop will also be drawn at this year’s event.
“This is one very special evening where our entire community comes together in the heart of our town on behalf of our local public schools,” said SVED Executive Director Laura Zimmerman, “The wine, food and music will be even more outstanding this year. We are super excited about the Red and White Ball 2012.”
