Historically, this event attracts 500 chocolate & wine lovers from the Bay Area. “This is the combination of the regions finest wines, best chocolates, and the desire to support the well-being of children. That is what makes this event so special. Each year, 30+ wineries pour and 30 chocolatiers serve.” said Doris Gentry, Event Chair since 2009.

The Napa County Foster Parents have, for over 50 years, led the way in building awareness, providing education, and inspiring hope to those involved in the effort of preventing child abuse & neglect thus breaking the cycle of violence that occurs from generation to generation.

This major Napa event is the chief funding for the Napa Foster Care Association. The $100,000+ raised from these Events offer kids a chance to be like others. When kids return to school from a break, they have stories of travels, BUT, Foster kids don’t have fun stories to share. By offering impoverished kids a Ferry trip to San Fran and lunch at Boudin, most would scoff, “We do that several times a year!” Well, foster kids, for the most part, have never been to San Fran, or on a boat and certainly have not eaten at Boudin. This day trip we give them, thanks to your support, this single day trip is cherished. Our kids hang on and retell the story countless times.
