A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN, WINE, CHEFS & CHEESE
FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 2023
Gather Sonoma is YWCA’s single largest event of our year which provides much needed funding for our programs to keep Sonoma County families safe from harm. Our event begins with sparkling wine on the lush lawn of the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa. At noon, festivities move to the pavilion for lunch and live auction. Guests are seated at their table with a female winemaker or prominent woman in wine who will pair each course with their wines. The live auction provides a great opportunity to bid on remarkable packages.
