Earthquake Relief for the Napa Food Bank

NVCanDo.org website:

This is a time for giving.  In the CanDo tradition, we’re coordinating this drive with the Napa Food Bank in order to help replenish their provisions and their coffers in the aftermath of the earthquake.  We’ve done a similar drive in five previous years. Please:  Help us spread the word!

It’s called 10-10-10-10 because we’re asking folks for

  • 10 items of non-perishable food;
  • $10 (or more);
  • To spread the word to 10 friends and neighbors;
  • To do it all in 10 days.

Because we always seek to “ease the path from intent to action,” easy access to collection sites is imperative. Along with the usual grocery stores, we want ‘em in every neighborhood.

Napa Food Bank – Top Ten

  1. Pasta Products
  2. Canned Veggies, no/low salt
  3. Canned Fruit, in natural juice
  4. Canned Tomato Products, no/low salt
  5. 100% Juice, in unbreakable packaging
  6. Peanut Butter, w/no additives, plastic packaging

Earthquake Relief

First and foremost, we are grateful to our friends, guests and associates who have contacted us and extended their support in the aftermath of Sunday’s 6.2 Earthquake.  We are grateful to be in such a warm and generous community.

We extend our support towards the families and businesses that did lose so much during the Earthquake.  This unexpected natural disaster took us all by surprise and has left a permanent scar on the Napa Valley and its inhabitants.

Auberge is donating a one-night stay and four-course dinner for two in an effort to raise Earthquake Relief Funds for Napa locals that experienced significant damage to their homes. The live auction is being held at Quintessa next Tuesday, Sept. 9 from 4-7pm, all are welcome. Please come support this great cause!

Auberge will also be a collection site for the Napa Food Bank, they have been hit hard due to the earthquake and their shelves need replenishment. The collection barrel will be at Auberge from 9/5-9/15.

The Food Drive is called a 10-10-10-10 event, coordinated by Napa CanDo.

  • 10 items of non-perishable food
  • $10 value (or more)
  • Spread the word to 10 friends/neighbors
  • Do it all in 10 days

RHYTHMIC WATER MASSAGE

Experience a profoundly relaxing aquatic movement therapy that combines gentle stretching, acupressure, and Shiatsu massage while being floated in the warm waters of our Infinity-Edge pool overlooking the Napa Valley.  Watsu uses the lightness of the body in water to free the spinal vertebrae, rotate joint articulations and elongate muscles. Your therapist will guide you through rhythmic, “dance-like” movements performed in harmony with breathing patterns to inspire the natural regeneration of the body and mind.

Arts in April at Auberge du Soleil

Art Conversations: Sculptors Lilsa Demetrios and Matt Gill

Auberge du Soleil
180 Rutherford Hill Rd
Rutherford, CA 94573
04/19/2014 at 11am

Visit Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford on April 19 at 11:00 am for an Art Conversation with Sculptors Lilsa Demetrios and Matt Gill. These two sculptors from different backgrounds discuss how they take their concepts to craft. This is a complimentary event.

Llisa Demetrios, a Sonoma-based sculptor, has employed modern welding techniques in the making of her large and small scale works in bronze for more than twenty years. A graduate of Yale University, Demetrios hails from a family of gifted artists–her grandparents were renowned mid-century designers Charles and Ray Eames, and her mother is sculptor Lucia Eames, with whom she shares a studio.

Matt Gil’s metal sculptures, while highly technical and refined with his use of negative space, can also communicate great humor through a bold use of color and form. Born and educated in California, Gil says of his process: “The more I visualize the mood or the feeling of a particular piece, as well as the process of constructing a new piece, the easier it is to build it.  Sometimes it feels like the pieces build themselves…”
