Wine-Country Wildfire Recovery Benefit Raises Over $3.4 MillionDecember 5, 2017
Wine Spectator Grand Award–winning chefs and leading members of the Napa and Sonoma county wine community helped power a dinner and charity auction on the night of December 2 that raised more than $3.4 million to benefit recovery efforts in the wake of October’s devastating wildfires in California’s North Bay counties.
“A Night of Friendship & Neighbors” was held at the Greystone campus of the Culinary Institute of America in the Napa Valley town of St. Helena. More than $2.3 million was raised during a live auction of prestigious lots held while 340 guests enjoyed a $2,500-a-plate dinner in the building’s old barrel cellars. Wine Spectator, which was a sponsor of the event, has a full recap.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
