Visit California will host the Grateful Table Benefit -- an outdoor event with seating for 1,000 near the Napa-Sonoma border -- on Tuesday, Nov. 21, with all proceeds going to fire recovery charities.
The ticketed event is open to the public. It will feature one long table seating 1,000 guests "celebrating the true spirit of Wine Country" with California wine and cuisine prepared by Food Network chef Tyler Florence.
The Napa County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved closing a portion of Duhig Road in Carneros for the table setup. The roadway would be closed from 2170 Duhig, which is the last home in Napa County, to the Napa/Sonoma county line from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
A portion of Ramal Road in Sonoma County will also be used for the event.
The dining benefit begins at 1 p.m.
The cost is $500 for a single ticket, $4,000 for a table of eight. A $250 Share the Love donation buys a seat for first responders or residents affected by the fires.
The event is intended to send out the message that wine country is ready to again host tourists following October's devastating fires. Organizers hope to raise $500,000 for fire relief.
