The evening begins with a family-style dinner accompanied by a champagne reception, passed hors d'oeuvres, a full no-host bar and a "diner en blanc." Event organizers strongly encourage participants to dress in all white to really immerse themselves in the evening, but the dress code is not mandatory.
After dinner, guests will have the opportunity to participate in silent and live auctions, where they will have the opportunity to bid on items such as a homemade dinner with Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department firefighters, and a chance to name an Eight Bridges Brewing Company beer after a pet (custom label design included).
Pleasanton residents will once again get the opportunity to bid on the city's highest pet-related honor, Ambassadog. The winning bidder's canine will become the city of Pleasanton's Ambassadog for 2019, complete with a declaration from the city, a feature profile, a community television interview and a prime spot in the Hometown Holiday Parade.
The gala will also feature an opportunity for guests to get up and dance to complete the evening.
