​​​​​​​Thank you Sacramento for your warm embrace of Le Dîner en Blanc!

Almost 1,700 revelers gathered at the iconic Sacramento Memorial Auditorium for the 2nd edition of Le Dîner en Blanc Sacramento on October 7th. Once again, Sacramentans had a chance to enjoy one of our city’s special public spaces, exhibit their unique fashion, and dine together in open-air with friends, neighbors and fellow citizens.

Your Hosts and Leaders want to thank you—our guests—for your spirit, energy, enthusiasm and total commitment to participating in an event of your own creation. Our heartfelt thanks also goes to our local partners Nugget Markets, the Sawyer Kimpton Hotel, and Niello Land Rover of Rocklin and Sacramento, and to Evian Badoit as the 2017 National partner.

Thank you especially to Vickie Housholder and Matt Voreyer of the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium for the hospitality and for opening the doors (and lawns) to us for a momentous occasion. Our gratitude goes also to some very special collaborators: Classique Catering, Downtown Sacramento Partnership, Sacramento PD, Hacker Lab, Republic Waste Services, Celebrations! Party Rentals, and the City of Sacramento for their invaluable support and contributions.

But in the end, your Dîner en Blanc experience is all about your Leaders. We have a huge amount of gratitude for Liza Pogemiller, Megan Blackwell, Judy Collinsworth, May Ann McAlea Johnny Neang, Jessica Reddig and Joan Schubert; and the 29 Table Leaders who made this year’s experience a remarkable one.

Sacramento’s 2017 event was captured in pictures by four amazing local photographers: Cleber Bonato, Roderick Cooney, Doug Cupid and David Schubert. A photo gallery of their work can be viewed on the Dîner en Blanc Sacramento website.

As you can see, Le Dîner en Blanc - Sacramento is a whole-community effort, for the community and by the community. We were proud to bring this unique event to Sacramento and can't wait for Le Dîner en Blanc - Sacramento 2018!

À l'année prochaine!
