Our sixteenth annual benefit gala will take place at the Louis M. Martini Winery on September 9, 2022, celebrating the theme Reflect & Rejoice.

Reflect & Rejoice is a night to reflect on the hardships that the past two years have brought us and rejoice in our collective resilience. Collabria Care hopes to exceed previous gala fundraising goals and raise a record amount to ensure their ability to provide high-quality, integrated care for patients and their families when they face a serious illness, end of life, or are living with loss. This evening will include a spectacular live auction filled with the best offerings from supporters around the Valley and beyond.

Gina Gallo joins an impressive list of former honorary chairs that includes Emma Swain, Leslie and Rich Frank, husband Jean-Charles Boisset, Thomas Keller, Margrit Mondavi, Beth Nickel, Dario Sattui, and two generations of both the Rombauer and the Torres families.

Gina Gallo, longtime friend and supporter of the vibrant nonprofit organization, is honorary chair for the gala. The must-attend social event of the year will honor the vice president of winemaking – Estate Wines at E. & J. Gallo Winery for her achievements in the wine industry, the community, and as a generous supporter of Collabria Care.

“On behalf of my family, I deeply appreciate being selected as honorary chair for such an amazing event. This event is critically important to the financial support of Collabria Care—a service that has been a cornerstone to the Napa community since 1979,” says Gina Gallo, “I couldn’t think of a better opportunity to show how grateful we all are to the caregivers who provide indispensable support to the families in our community.”

The annual benefit gala—the single largest fundraising event the nonprofit agency hosts—will be catered by Napa Valley renowned Tre Posti, a fine dining caterer that specializes in fresh, local ingredients with a Napa-Italian twist. During the live auction, guests will be offered an opportunity to raise a paddle and “fund-a-need” in support of the vital work Collabria Care does throughout Napa County.
