We are firm believers in gathering for the sake of gathering however, when a community comes together for a common cause, that gathering becomes all the more impactful. After the destruction the Napa Valley fires left behind last fall, the region continues the healing process but is ready to welcome visitors and provide the legendary Napa Wine Valley experience to all who stay awhile. Last November (about 6 weeks after the fires), Ashley Smith Events helped Casey Burke, Jessica Berry, Layla Azimi, Lisa Nourse PR, Jesse Tombs and more prouduce a beneficiary event raising $27,000 of direct relief funds. One item auctioned off was a private dinner party featuring some of San Fransisco’s finest creative minds. All who were involved donated their time, resources and talent to create a one-of-a-kind dinner party for the lucky winner.
We caught up with Ashley Smith about this group of San Franciscans coming to stand by the side of their sister community and, of course, what went into creating this magical dinner party at Capitol Art.
