Thank you Sacramento for another Dîner en Blanc to remember!
Once again, Sacramentans had a chance to enjoy one of our city’s very special public spaces, exhibit their unique fashion, and dine together in open-air with friends, neighbors and fellow citizens. Your Hosts and Leaders 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, Niello BMW and the Golden 1 Center at DOCO Plaza as official local partners of the 2018 edition of Le Dîner en Blanc and to our valued national partners Luxury Retreats, Sofitel and ONEHOPE.
Thank you especially to Zoo Director Jason Jacobs and Jess Dudek of the Sacramento Zoo for their hospitality and for opening the gates to us for a momentous occasion. Our gratitude goes also to some incredible collaborators who all had a hand in making the night shine bright: Celebrations! Party Rentals, Nix Tacos, South, Julian’s Catering, Mulvaney’s B&L, Sacramento PD, Sacramento Contemporary Dance Theatre, Shawn Thwaites Steel Drums, Lion Dance Me Team, Canaan Light & Sound, Showbiz Lighting, and the City of Sacramento. We appreciate your invaluable partnerships and contributions.
But in the end, your Dîner en Blanc experience is all about your Leaders. We have a huge amount of appreciation for Jessica Reddig, Joan Schubert, Megan Blackwell, Judy Collinsworth, Mary Ann McAlea, Vickie Housholder, Drisha Leggit, Justin Santana, Sara Arbabian and Miya Allen; and the 35 Table Leaders who made this year’s experience a remarkable one.
Sacramento’s 2018 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. And Jeffery Fong and his Film Squad crew shot and produced the official video. Look for it on our Facebook page to be published soon.
As you can see, Le Dîner en Blanc is a whole-community effort, for the community and by the community. We are proud to bring this unique event to Sacramento and can't wait to see you next time!
À l'année prochaine!
Your Dîner en Blanc - Sacramento Host Team
