Dear Friends,

For two decades, community members and local businesses like you have helped me generate $2 million for worthy local charities and community projects through my annual Holiday Celebration. This year, I’m proud to have chosen the NCOE Foundation as the beneficiary. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from this event will support their work with the Napa County Office of Education to provide comprehensive after school programs to over 4,000 students in Napa County.

Please join us Monday, December 9 at Silverado Resort & Spa. The golf tournament Shotgun Start begins at 11:30 a.m. The Holiday Party buffet dinner and auction kicks off at 5:00 p.m. You can purchase your tickets at this link. We hope you will also consider providing your support as a sponsor or donating to our auction.

As a father of five and grandfather to nine, I strongly believe in the importance of after school programs because they provide safe and vibrant environments for our youth in the crucial after school hours. The NCOE After School programs has over a decade of history in providing after school, before school, and summer programming to students in Napa County’s highest need public schools. They provide every student opportunities for growth and exploration in a safe and caring environment. I know that after school programs play an integral role in supporting families and providing every student access to learning.

Your support makes all the difference for our youth. We look forward to celebrating the holidays with you on December 9.
