Pleasures of the Palate

Pleasures of the Palate, or POP, is St. Albans Country Day School’s primary fundraising event of the year. The event began nearly 25 years ago as a tasting event with a silent and live auction. The format has changed over the past few years, becoming a sit-down dinner, including a fun silent auction with surprise drawings and games, and ending with an entertaining Live Auction hosted by professional auctioneer, David Sobon.

Funds raised at POP are an essential piece of the annual budget. The success of POP can only be achieved with 100% parent support through attendance, donations, and/or volunteering to be part of the planning committee or work on the night of the event. Each family is required to purchase or sell two tickets to the event (price is usually $100 per ticket). We also encourage alumni, past parents, and friends in the community to participate through event sponsorships, auction item donations, and by attending the event.

This year’s POP will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at The Milagro Experience Event Center in Carmichael. Cocktails and silent auction begin at 6:00 pm, a family style sit-down dinner prepared by Executive Chef Jeremy Zimmerman will begin at 7:00 pm, and the live auction featuring David Sobon will begin at 8:00 pm.
