White Nights Gala

Classical Tahoe’s White Nights Gala is a one-of-a-kind fundraiser held at the breathtaking lakefront estate of Kern Schumacher in Incline Village, Nevada.

The title of the event, “White Nights,” is a nod toward the popular international ‘diner en blanc’ pop-up events that invite guests in major cities around the globe to don their finest white attire and descend on secret locations that are revealed at the last moment, with their gourmet picnics in tow. Classical Tahoe’s White Nights gala is no secret and will provide its white-attired guests with a gourmet feast, silent and live auctions as well as a special performance treat.
