About Night to Shine

Night to Shine is an opportunity to socialize as a parent community, build lasting connections, and have fun – with no fundraising at the event. The Meridian School is a community that values and demonstrates what it means to live within an inclusive culture of philanthropy. For this reason, our spring event raises revenue for the school only through pre-event support from ticket sales, sponsorships, and generous donations and underwriting to meet our fundraising goals for the year. To help us accomplish this, visit our registration page to purchase tickets, select a business sponsorship, make a general donation, or provide underwriting support.  Purchase Tickets: You must register for tickets to attend. Valuing our community, we want to make sure everyone feels welcome at this event! Tickets are available on a sliding scale – $150 per person (full price), $75 per person (half price), and pay what you can. RSVP by Friday, March 10.  Business Sponsorship: By becoming an auction sponsor, businesses gain exposure and advertise to an audience of over 200 parents from neighborhoods across King County. Visit our registration page to select your sponsorship. 

  • Platinum: $2,500 or more
  • Gold: $1,000
  • Silver: $500
  • Bronze: $250

To promote our value of an inclusive culture of philanthropy, all sponsors will receive the same recognition:

  • Name and company logo featured on event website, school website, and school newsletter.
  • Recognition on social media.
  • Featured, individual signage the night of the event (designed by Meridian).
  • Special recognition by emcee at the event.

General Donation and/or Underwriting: Families can make a general donation or underwrite a specific portion of the evening to help offset event costs so more pre-event support raised goes to our people and program! Visit our registration page to make a general donation or underwrite an event element. Underwriting options include:

  • Teacher/staff experience ($100 each; up to 12 available)
  • $500 photography
  • $500 surprise activity
  • $750 dessert bar
  • $750 photo booth
  • $1,000 DJ Darek from KEXP

More Information

What can we expect at the event?
This lively evening is a special opportunity to socialize as a parent community, build lasting connections, and have fun. So, expect a party! There will be a return of our very popular Teacher Experiences for random drawings, a photobooth, and other fun activities. We provide heavy hors d’œuvres (hearty enough for a dinner, we promise!) and delicious desserts, along with beer, wine, and a specialty cocktail throughout. DJ Darek from KEXP will keep the venue lively with music and a dance floor. Who attends Night to Shine? This is a parent/guardian-only evening.
What do I wear to Night to Shine?
Last year’s attire was as diverse as our community, and there is no pressure to dress up for this event. However, we find that many enjoy throwing on something special for a night on the town! In the past, most guests have opted for cocktail attire, which is a balance between formal and casual, elegant and comfortable. Who do I contact with additional questions?
