Queen of the Valley Foundation presented the 23rd annual Reach for the
Stars, an annual fashion show and luncheon starring and honoring those
who have been personally affected by cancer, on Saturday, March 26, 2016,
at Silverado Resort & Spa.
This year, we are proud to honor Margrit Biever Mondavi at the event. Over
many decades, artist and philanthropist Margrit Mondavi, together with
her late husband, Robert, has shaped the Napa Valley in countless ways,
making it the warm, sharing community it has become.
With their generosity of spirit, altruism, and above all their embrace
of life and all its gifts, Margrit and Robert set a philanthropic example
sometimes matched but never surpassed in our community. Both with Robert
and on her own, Margrit has been a longtime and unwavering champion of
the arts, a supporter of countless local charities and nonprofits, and
an exemplar of the goodwill and spirit that make Napa one of the most
special places on earth, creating an indelible mark on the valley and
its fortunate residents.
A moving celebration of strength and survivorship, Reach for the Stars
highlights Queen of the Valley’s dedication to assisting individuals
with cancer. All event proceeds benefit the Queen’s Cancer Wellness
Program and make it possible for patients to participate free of charge.
With a physician referral, the 12-week wellness program is open to all
cancer patients in the community, regardless of where they are being treated
or if they have insurance. With support from these funds, the program
has aided over 786 cancer survivors since its inception.
The physical and emotional support of the Cancer Wellness Program is highly
valued by cancer patients and their families. The program includes everything
from supervised progressive exercise with a personal trainer, to nutrition
counseling, stress management, acupuncture, healing touch—whatever
our participants need to make their experience of undergoing treatment
the best it can be under the circumstances.
