As the school's only annual fundraising community event, School Night is a great way to support Drew's Faculty salaries and professional development while having an amazing time with our community! We'll be serving delicious cocktail plates by Bi-Rite honoring the beautiful art on the walls at The Pearl, each piece depicting a map of an international city or its subway line. (See photos at right.)
We'll also have a raw bar by Delfina, and a full bar sponsored by our Board of Trustees. And you won't want to miss our very own Guittard chocolate chip bar (if you don't know, it involves a chisel and some very large blocks of delicious dark, milk and white chocolate!).
Welcome and thank you for your interest in joining us at School Night! Online ticketing is now closed, but you may still purchase your ticket at the door this evening!
If you plan to join us tonight, please email Lyla Max @ firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we know to expect you. The check-in crew will take care of your registration at The Pearl.
Thank you and see you tonight!

Created for The Pearl, the permanent installation of works by Alexis Laurent weave the story of Dogpatch, San Francisco, and global urbanism as they evolve from an industrial past to a diverse, urban future. Alexis develops artwork that deepens his interest in the dialogue between the natural world and the industrial one.
