Scope of Services / Description of Event or Program.

 

Event Description:

One Night Out is an annual affordable diversity event conceived as a means to celebrate people and cultures, bringing together those of varied ages, backgrounds, and socioeconomic levels for a memorable evening of building community at a general admission price of $40. This pricing is intentionally designed to be inclusive, so low-income residents and families on a budget, who often cannot afford gala events, museum fundraisers and other high ticket cultural events or festivals, can afford one culturally enriching evening with dining, drinks, entertainment, and dancing - all included in a $40 ticket. The general admission price has not exceeded $40, despite increases in costs across the valley for food, entertainment, and facilities. The Foundation would like to continue offering the community an evening to reconnect with friends and make new ones while celebrating diversity. 

 

The event is held on the first Saturday of October at the Palm Springs Air Museum. The inaugural event held in 2022, themed One Night Out Havana Nights, had 600+ attendees celebrating the language, music and creativity of Havana. Feedback from follow-up surveys indicated great value and attendees enjoyed the diversity of people attending, young, old, ethnicities, single, married. In 2023, the event was One Night Out Bollywood, authentically celebrating the colorful, festive East Indian culture with authentic Bollywood dance lessons and Indian foods, again honoring a rich culture many of our residents will never get to experience in their lives. The event again attracted 570 attendees and a large population from Valley’s Indian community where there to share in the culture with residents. They dressed in a beautiful array of traditional and authentic clothing.

 

Scope:

Scope would include fees for the Palm Springs Air Museum space rental and a contribution toward catering by Lulu, official caterer of the Air Museum and hired entertainment, décor and design.

 

Separately, a small production team of 6-7 local unpaid volunteers contribute their time to manage the event, menu planning, all the graphics and marketing, all event operational logistics, ticket sales, checking-in, hiring music and entertainment, securing sponsors, table arrangements, environmental design and décor, and themed merchandise for sale.

 

How the event/program will benefit the residents of the Coachella Valley.

 

Population:

The target population is a diverse mix of ages and backgrounds, as the intent is to bring together and celebrate diversity of cultures and people.  The $40 ticket price is intentionally set low to be inclusive and accessible for individuals and families, young (21+) and old, who are on a budget yet want an experience they typically can’t afford.

Culturally Enriching:

The program theme, Rio, is culturally enriching. It recreates a vibrant and beautiful experience from another part of the world where most residents will never have the opportunity to visit. Our past two events were themed Havana and Bollywood, celebrating the rich history and iconic cultural stories from both of these destinations.

 

Educational:

One Night Out highlights a graduate from the community who has shown achievement and given back to others in Coachella Valley. The Alumni Spotlight Award is a prestigious award that honors a distinguished PSUSD alumnus. In 2022, Jeff Grubbe, former Chairman of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, and graduate of Palm Springs High School, was honored. In 2023 five-time world champion boxer and philanthropist Timothy Bradley, a graduate of Cathedral City High School graduate, was honored.

The Foundation for PSUSD also has a program to educate residents on the importance of education and students in our community. Whether it’s through volunteering, financial sponsorship, mentoring, hiring, or helping students get into college, our next generation needs support to ensure a vibrant community long-term.

 

All proceeds benefit The Foundation for Palm Springs Unified School District's educational enhancement
programs, supporting our community of 20,000+ students. A PSUSD Alumni Production.
