Dreyfoos in White 2017 promises to be a night to remember at this year’s white themed pop-up dinner party at a secret location to benefit the Dreyfoos School of the Arts Foundation. Set for Saturday, Oct. 21 from 6 to 10 p.m., the fifth annual Dreyfoos in White will feature all of the fun and festivities that have made this a must-attend event of the social season.
At Dreyfoos in White, guests dress in all white and host their own al fresco dinner party within the grand event — bringing simple fare, an extravagant feast or by purchasing their meals from the prix fixe menu provided by Sandy James Fine Foods.
The Dreyfoos School of the Arts Foundation does the rest — providing tables, chairs, sparklers to light up the night, and entertainment by Dreyfoos students and alumni. Dreyfoos in White also includes a prize drawing with tickets available at $25 each or three for $50. Partygoers will compete for great prizes awarded to the best tablescapes, with décor ranging from wild creativity to exquisite elegance. Tickets for Dreyfoos in White are $50 and are available at www.soafi.org.

Funds raised through Dreyfoos in White help support vital educational programs that would otherwise not be funded. Last year, the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts Foundation provided $1.2 million in support to the School of the Arts. Many of the school’s alumni have gone on to great success in their art areas, including communication arts, dance, digital media, music, theatre, and visual arts because of the resources and opportunities that Dreyfoos was able to provide.
