Each winning bidder will receive two invitations to:

  • A special and unique pre-inauguration dinner at Wappo Hill hosted by Jean-Charles Boisset and Gina Gallo, prepared by celebrity chef Tyler Florence

The stars align for this dazzling preinauguration dinner celebrating American artistry at its best. Jean-Charles Boisset and Gina Gallo invite you to their home high atop Wappo Hill, an iconic property at the pinnacle of the Napa Valley that has played host to some of the most memorable food, wine and art gatherings from sea to shining sea. Boasting sweeping vistas — north to Mount St. Helena and south to San Pablo Bay — it also holds Jean-Charles Boisset’s glittering collection of Baccarat crystal, which shines as brightly as tonight’s guests.

With the entire valley sparkling beneath you, you will dine on an exquisite meal created by one of America’s most important culinary voices, chef Tyler Florence, who will share his passion for American cuisine along with inside stories about his experiences cooking for the President. Your dinner will be paired with hand-selected wines from Jean-Charles and Gina’s private cellar, including wine selected for White House dinners. A limited number of guests, including Congresswoman and first female Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her husband, Paul, join you for this special evening.

All of these elements come together to set the stage for a musical surprise that you won’t want to miss.

Our best advice? To steal a title from a great American songwriter, “Don’t stand around wishin’ and hopin’ for an invite when you can bid for one.”
