Save the date for the 24th annual Reach for the Stars on April 15, 2017.

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.
