In the past, Napa Wine Tours has turned the spotlight on Napa Valley wineries benefiting the community through a variety of fundraisers for a variety of Napa Valley non profits. Today we shine the spotlight on the combined efforts of the Napa Valley professional community to contribute to a non profit committed to providing musical resources for Napa Valley schools.
The 4th Annual Napa Valley BBQ & Beer Battle takes place at Napa Valley Marriott on Sunday June 30, 2013 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. This special afternoon fundraiser benefits the Napa Valley Education Foundation’s Music Connection Program – a program that has enriched the lives of Napa Valley students for over a decade.
