Collabria Care – formerly Napa Valley Hospice & Adult Day Services – proudly announces its 10th annual gala, Cheers! Celebrating the Past, Toasting the Future. The gala will take place on Friday, September 9, 2016 at Castello di Amorosa in Calistoga. This elegant fundraiser will offer superb cuisine, exceptional wines and a live auction resplendent with unique, desirable auction lots.
“Cheers!” will honor the long-term commitment and philanthropic support of K.R. and Laura Rombauer, this year’s Honorary Chairs. “The Rombauer family knows and trusts Collabria Care,” said K.R. “The medical care, compassion, and dignity at every stage of an illness is extraordinary. Collabria Care helped our family to understand the end of life, with comfort and grace.”
The Rombauer family has been an invaluable partner with Collabria Care for more than a decade. Through their generous support, they have demonstrated an ongoing passion for ensuring high-quality care and incomparable services for individuals and their families throughout our community.
The highlight of the evening will be the prestigious live auction featuring the honorary chair’s lot—a barrel of Rombauer wine together with unforgettable Napa Valley experiences for three couples. Other lots include a dinner for four at the San Francisco home of Jean-Charles Boisset and Gina Gallo-Boisset, with accommodations at the Ritz Carlton; an Alaskan Adventure with a salmon fishing, whale watching, and glacier exploration; a week at a luxury property in Manzanillo, Mexico, with chef, housekeeper, and private beach included; and a collection of sought after magnums of premium wine. Proxy bidding is available for those who wish to participate but are unable to attend the auction.
“The funds raised at our annual gala are integral in ensuring our commitment to delivering superior, compassionate care to our patients and their loved ones, as they face serious illness or the end-of-life.” said Linda Gibson, Collabria Care’s President & CEO. “It will be a memorable wine country evening, and we encourage our community and our supporters to attend.”
