Hands Across the Valley VIP Sponsor tickets also offer a VIP Dinner provided by Chef Elaine Bell. The 2022 event is hosted by Bay Area actor & comedian Bob Sarlatte, along with former KTVU Sports Director Mark Ibanez and other surprise celebrity guests. The entertaining Liam Mayclem, KCBS’ Foodie Chap, will lead the live auction team, raising paddles and money to feed the hungry.

This year’s event will include a special tribute to Hands Across the Valley founder George Altamura for his 30+ years of tireless work supporting food safety net programs that ensure no one goes hungry in the Napa Valley. 

Hands Across the Valley Board Member Nancy White Gamble will be honoring George with a special tribute performance by the Gamble’s Dancing Stallions. Adding to the excitement, the Gambles will also present exclusive first-look trailer of their upcoming film, Centurion the Dancing Stallion, which was inspired, in part, by star stallion Centurion’s  inspiring story of rescue and rehabilitation.
