Sunset Soirée


A deep desire to connect and celebrate life… we all possess it. And still, life is busy. Seasons seem to end just as quickly as they begin. Some days feel like a blur as the world keeps on spinning. We’re easily sucked into the monotonous tasks of our day-to-day. But, if we’re lucky, something interrupts the pattern. An event on the calendar. A reason to pause and celebrate. 

You’re invited to join us for a summer evening alongside a group of like-minded entrepreneurs, creators, and community builders. Gather around the table as we bridge the gap between online and offline, discover opportunities to collaborate with each other, and perhaps most importantly, connect with ourselves. 

Enjoy a delicious three-course Mediterranean-inspired vegetarian communal meal in a sun-filled setting featuring seasonal produce, guided self-reflections, good conversation, and a curated gift bag to take home.

Xanthe Appleyard (@ohsierracreative) is a content strategy coach and passionate community builder, based in Los Angeles. As the co-founder of Oh Sierra, alongside her husband Frank, Xanthe helps creative leaders harness the potent power of community through content strategy + education, collaborative events, and creative spaces. While Xanthe spends most of her time supporting creatives with sustainable strategies for leading their communities online, she's even more obsessed with cultivating presence and purpose offline. She believes that the most engaging content happens off screen, and that committing to online growth doesn't mean committing to an online life. Her unique approach to content marketing is rooted in leveraging social media as a tool for cultivating relationships, understanding that the way we interact with the world outside of our phones actually informs the quality (and longevity) with which we can show up to our platforms, for our people.
