Dinner at the Ranch
October 7, 2017
Connolly Ranch’s annual fundraiser, Dinner at the Ranch benefits the 10,000 children and adults served by Connolly Ranch each year. Guests are invited to don festive farm wear for a family-style, farm-to-table feast. Dine under the canopy of Connolly Ranch’s Bay grove, enjoy unique and exclusive live and silent auctions and dance under the stars to live music.
Proceeds from the event will support Connolly Ranch, Napa’s only working farm dedicated to connecting kids and families to nature through farm-based education. A rich reminder of Napa’s agricultural past, Connolly Ranch supports the Napa community through subsidized field trips, camps, classes, events and workshops.
$100 of each ticket is tax-deductible. Proceeds benefit the children and families served by Connolly Ranch.
If you would like to support our annual fundraiser as a sponsor, donor, volunteer or committee member, please contact Jennifer at (707) 224-1894, email@example.com.

With over $130,000 raised, we will be able to provide free field trips to schools most in need and subsidized field trips to all schools and nonprofits serving children. Plus, we will launch an affordable after-school program in 2015, offer scholarships to dozens of students and families and commence our free weekly “Walk-in Wednesdays” program for everyone to enjoy the farm!
THANK YOU Dinner at the Ranch wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and generosity of our board, staff, volunteers and donors. Connolly Ranch would like to extend a special thank you to those who went above and beyond to support our most successful fundraiser to date.
