This past week, Adam and I took the kids up north to Napa Valley for our last little getaway before The Real starts. We love it up in wine country, it’s our home away from home, and always a great opportunity to take part in some of our favorite activities. We relaxed (this two kids stuff is exhausting, lol), saw a Giants game (go SF!) and took an evening to help a charity that is dear to our hearts.
Since we love Napa, and consider ourselves part of the community, we attended the Hands Across the Valley fundraiser. The organization was started by our host for the evening, George Altamura, as a way to help raise funds for the Napa Food Bank. With thousands of locals going without, George wanted to make sure the food banks could provide for each resident in need. And for the past 22 years, he’s ensured they don’t go hungry–the organization has raised over $2 million for Napa Valley’s Safety Net Food programs.
This year’s fundraiser was as fabulous as past events. Held at the historic Charles Krug Winery in St. Helena, there were tasting tables with wines from local wineries like Elyse, Silverado Vineyards, Ca Momi…the list goes on. There was a scrumptious meal prepared by Chef Bob Hurley from Hurley’s Restaurant in Yountville and to top it off, there were world champion dancing horses and live music (Aden would have loved to have seen them). Below are a few pictures from the night.
Charles Krug Winery was a beautiful location for a night under the stars.
Chef Bob Hurley made a delicious meal.
This horse has moves!
Such great attendance for a equally great cause.
A night out with my man. :)
I’m so happy Adam and I were able to attend the Hands Across the Valley fundraiser. There are so many who go hungry in our country when they shouldn’t have to and if we can make any type of dent in those numbers, and make sure our community is being taken care of, then we’re always happy to help.
