It's not that simple, savethechildren. How do you know these people are "retired, transplant, weekender, rural community" people who live in "houses on the hill"? How can you be so sure that the issues mentioned in the letter won't and don't affect you, no matter where yo…

I attended the opening event last night (Thursday). While attendance was sparse, it was great-- and what a deal! $10 for "Brandenburg Concertos" by the Napa Youth Symphony Chamber Ensemble, two great films, talks with the filmmakers, and a reception. I encourage anyone who loves th…

Thanks and kudos to Napa Valley CanDo for this great project. Encouraging young and first-time donors to participate for as little as $10.00, and making it easy to do so online, is a brilliant idea that clearly works! And I love that every penny goes to help these great local nonprofits.
