Time has passed quickly since we began planning for St. John’s Big Night Out, our 2014 fundraiser to help support the restoration of our historic church and COTS’ Food Box Program.
This is the formal invitation to the event. Enclosed, please find the registration form, the list of host homes with dinner menus, and a description of our raffle items.
As a reminder, the event is a two-part affair. From 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 3rd, there will be a catered reception in St. John’s parish hall with music provided by Take Jack, a Sonoma County choral group. At the reception, we will raffle off some great items as well as tempt you with a variety of offerings in our silent and live auctions.
At 6:30 p.m. guests will leave the reception and head to a host home for a private dinner for eight to twelve people. On the reservation form, you will be able to select your first, second and third choices for your dinner venue and you will find out which home you will visit at the reception’s check-in table. You will also receive directions to your host home.
You may choose to attend the reception only, or the reception and a private dinner. The reservation form has a space for you to indicate your decision, with the corresponding cost for each choice. You may also purchase raffle tickets and there is a space on the reservation form for you to tell us how many tickets you wish to buy.
The completed reservation form with your payment must be returned by mail, or in person, to St. John’s Episcopal Church, 40 Fifth Street, Petaluma, CA 94952 no later than April 19. Payment may be made by personal check or credit card. You may also register and pay online by clicking the “Register Online” button from The Big Night Out homepage at www.stjohnsbignightout.com. Be advised, however, that there is a small fee charged by Eventbrite for online registration.
Please join St. John’s Parish family, our friends at COTS, and others from our community, for a wonderful evening of food, drink, music and fellowship.
See you there!
