Napa Valley Festival del Sole Announces Kevin Spacey in Concert at The Annual Festival Gala at Meadowood Napa Valley


Two­-Time  Academy  Award  Winner  to  Perform  at  Benefit  Event Supporting  Arts  &  Culture  in  the  Napa  Valley  

Napa Valley Festival del Sole, a non-­profit organization dedicated to enhancing the region’s cultural vitality, presents award-­winning actor Kevin Spacey as the headline entertainer for its Annual Festival Gala at Meadowood Napa Valley on July 19, 2015. The celebration, Hollywood + Vine, will be reminiscent of the glittering nightclub scene of Hollywood's Golden Era, featuring Spacey singing standards from the swing era and popular classics from the Great American Songbook.

The evening of music and glamour will be held on the newly designed croquet glen and fairways at Meadowood Napa Valley. Guests will dine on cuisine from Meadowood estate chef Alejandro Ayala, paired with 90+ point wines from the vaults of Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines. Afterwards, Kevin Spacey – two-­time Academy Award winner, Golden Globe Award winner, Tony Award winner, and star and executive producer of the Netflix hit House of Cards – will bring his star power to the festival stage to sing and entertain.

The festivities will culminate with a high-­energy live auction featuring a dozen exclusive luxury lots. Proceeds from the auction make possible the festival’s free and low-cost concert opportunities for local residents as well as grants to bolster Napa County public school arts education initiatives. In 2014, the event raised a record-­setting $1.3 million and allowed the organization to fulfill every wish submitted by Napa County elementary art, drama and music teachers for classroom materials for the 2014-15 school year.

Passes to the Festival Gala at Meadowood are available for $1000 per person ($700 tax deductible). Table sponsorships, ensuring prime seating and recognition benefits, are available for $15,000 and up. To purchase passes or sponsor a table, please contact Tessa Edwards, Development Manager, at [email protected] or 707.346.5052, ext. 4.
