Haute Scene | Wine, Women and Music Luncheon

As an enduringly uplifting art form, music rallied 60 of Wine Country’s most philanthropic females for a good cause. The first-ever Wine, Women and Music Luncheon at the private estate of vintner Leslie Frank benefited Festival Napa Valley, the 10-day summer festival that brings world class artists to perform and is also the largest funder of visual and performing arts for Napa County public schools.

Singer and harpist Lucinda Belle

Guests paid $2,000 each for a lunch by celebrity chef Christina Machamer, music by harpist Lucinda Belle, and a fashion show by clothier Elyse Walker. Power players mean business: more than $100,000 was raised.
