Big Night Out

A Big Night for Giving

Big Night Out is the most important fundraiser for the Sonoma Academy Parents Association but it is also much, much more; it helps stitch together the families of our school with the common thread of community service and fun. In mid-March of every year, the SA community gathers for this themed fundraiser party; the creativity and costumes donned by parents, grandparents, trustees, and alumni, in addition to the magnificent décor, make this enchanting evening a sight to behold! 

At Big Night Out, funds are raised through our online and silent wine auctions, live auction, as well as a raffle and Fund For Excellence paddle raise. All items featured during this evening are donated by members of the generous extended Sonoma Academy community, and generous sponsorships ensure that 100% of the auction proceeds will pass directly to Sonoma Academy’s programs and facilities, faculty development, and financial aid.

A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a colony was founded on the party planet SABNO-2020. This spring, an intrepid group of intergalactic explorers will venture into the cosmos to join the celestial soiree. There is room on their spaceship for you… join the mission and the fun!
Big Night Outerspace will celebrate all things interstellar—think Star Wars, Sci-fi, satellites, supernovas, and spacewalks. Like any interplanetary project, Big Night Outerspace requires the talents and energy of many life forms. Help us to make our Mission to SABNO-2020 a success!

  • The BNO "What to Wear" Video Shoot Thursday, December 12

    Each year, we make a video to provide inspiration for our party-goers. It’s a fun and playful way to generate excitement for Big Night Out and to showcase the many fashionable interpretations of the theme.
    We need earthlings to participate and model looks for the evening at our photo and video shoot. 
    Here's how to join the crew: 
    • Reserve a slot to try on costumes on Wednesday, December 11 from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm in the Fitz. Our team has scoured the universe for a selection of outfits to try on, inspired by aliens, astronauts, androids, and everything in between. We also need Humans in Black (little black dress or suit and shades) and other earthbound looks. If you would like to bring your own outfit, let us know! Fittings will last approximately one hour. 
    • Sign up for a slot to strut your celestial stuff on Thursday, December 12, from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. We would especially like to have a crew of otherworldly travelers for our video shoot (12:15 pm to 12:30 pm in the Fitz). 
    If you have questions, please contact Big Night Outerspace Mission Control: Renata BelashAshlee Koch, or Cheryl Willett
