Our Take on “Diner en Blanc”
Bringing Big City Fundraising to West Chester
If you have heard of “Diner En Blanc”, in large cities like Philadelphia or New York City, then you will quickly understand the concept we are bringing to West Chester. Patrons dress all in white, from head to toe, and are bought together by a love of helping others in our own neighborhoods. Guests bring their own picnic dinner and cocktails to share a fun evening with family and friends. We will provide long tables for guests with white tablecloths, fabulous live music, dancing under the stars, and memories to last a lifetime!
Frequently Asked Questions
When will we find out the secret location of the event?
This will be updated in the summer of 2019.
How can I buy my tickets?
Ticket sales will begin on July 1, 2019.
Can I sit with my friends?
Sure! In order to “Reserve” a table you must purchase 10 tickets. Once this is complete, your table will be “RESERVED’ under your last name. You must communicate with your table friends so duplicate tickets are not purchased and to alleviate any confusion. If you buy less than 10, it is open seating with other guests to make a table of 10. We are providing long, banquet tables of 10 which include chairs and white tablecloths.
What time may we arrive?
Doors will open at 6:30pm for those wishing to decorate their tables! Please respect the property owners by adhering to arrival time.
