Local Report

The second annual Bob St. Laurent Charity Golf Classic, presented by Feast It Forward, will be held at 3 p.m. Friday, June 4, at Vintner’s Golf Course, 7901 Solano Ave., Yountville.

The event includes a 9-hole scramble tournament, golf cart rental, tasty drinks and an after-party starting at 6:30 p.m. and featuring “Slices & Splashes” at The Studio by Feast it Forward, 1031 McKinstry St., in Napa’s Oxbow District. The after-party features slices of wood-fired Difilippo Pizza, complimentary wine tasting (splashes), with additional food, beer and wine available for purchase.

The cost is $100 per person for everything, or $55 for the after party only.

This year’s tournament benefits The Napa Valley Education Foundation and Napa High Music Program through Gibson Gives.

“The goal for this year's event is to put guitars in the hands of the kids who need them most,” said event founder Bob St. Laurent. “When I approached Feast it Forward Founder Katie Hamilton Shaffer to collaborate for an elevated event, we thought it made sense to support her longtime sponsor, Gibson Guitar, with a goal to fill Napa and Vintage high school music programs with everything they need to keep music alive in the classroom. From guitars to strings and keys, we are making tomorrow's musicians today.”

Added Hamilton Shaffer, “Music and giving back are such a large part of our company. It’s a true honor to work with Bob and support our community.”

“It’s less about the golf score and more about the fun,” St. Laurent said. “It’s friends coming together to have a good time and do great things for the community.”

The event was made possible with support from Platinum Sponsors Gibson Gives, Price Simms Family Dealerships, and O.C. Jones & Sons, Inc, Gold Sponsors Myles Davis Electric, Individual hole sponsors California Highway Patrol, Cartons & Crates, Modern Renovations, Elizabeth Champion Real Estate Agent, Padis Jewelry, CEG and Community Partner RSA+.

St. Laurent, a Napa-based media personality, founded the event in 2019 to “bring friends together to enjoy great golf and food while supporting worthy causes.” For more information, contact St. Laurent at or 707) 225-1630.
