For one night, adults can return to the playground and enjoy an evening of nostalgic schoolyard games, gourmet cafeteria-inspired food, spiked adult juiceboxes, and live music by Manhattan – all for a great cause!

Want extra credit? Take a dig in our famous sandbox filled with luxury prizes, play a highly competitive game of musical chairs, toss rings for wine, compete for a chance to be crowned pop-a-shot champion, and many more!


Sponsorship packages are available beginning at $1,000.

In-kind items are also needed for the Sandbox and for Raffle packages.
