In conjunction with Earth Night, Connolly Ranch is also hosting a community art contest. Top entries will be displayed in the barn and winners will receive awards and prizes.
The event is made possible by the generous support of FARM Napa Valley, JaM Cellars, Sound Image Productions, The Doctor’s Company and a large community of supporting sponsors, volunteers and in-kind donors.
