The Napa Valley Festival del Sole 2015, a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the region’s cultural vitality, is happening soon!
The 10-day festival runs from July 17-26, 2015 and is comprised of countless dinners, classical and jazz concerts and art events – as well as fundraising opportunities.
More info on the Napa Valley Festival del Sole, including a calendar of this year’s events, can be found here.
One of the festival’s highlights is the Annual Festival Gala, set for July 19, at Meadowood Napa Valley.
The evening’s festivities will culminate with the high-energy live auction featuring a dozen exclusive luxury lots. Proceeds from the auction make possible the festival’s free and low-cost concert opportunities for local residents as well as grants to bolster Napa County public school arts education initiatives. In 2014, the event raised a record-setting $1.3 million and allowed the organization to fulfill every wish submitted by Napa County elementary art, drama and music teachers for classroom materials for the 2014-15 school year.
