ILEA Napa-Sonoma Third Annual Gala

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

The ILEA Napa-Sonoma chapter’s Third Annual Gala that was set on Tuesday, April 7 will be postponed until Winter 2020. With the ongoing developments of COVID-19, we felt that it would be best to reschedule the 2020 Gala to Winter so that we, as an events community would have the opportunity to address the impact on our industry. 

If you have purchased a ticket, thank you for your support.  These will be refunded to you as soon as possible. We hope that you will be able to join us later in the year!

We also wish to thank and recognize the generosity of Gala Sponsors who had already committed in-kind sponsorships to our annual fundraising gala.  

Thank you.

Venue & Wine: Paradise Ridge Winery
Catering: John Ash & Co. 
Linens: La Tavola Fine Linen
Dessert: teeny cake

In the mean time, our next in-person events will be moved digitally where needed and possible so that our community may connect with one another - virtually. Our next Master Series is on March 26 - Social Media Mastery with Business & Brand Strategist Bianca Broos.  Learn more and register on our events page.

About Our Venue


Walter and Marijke Byck moved to Santa Rosa in 1965, with two of their five children already in tow. They soon realized they had found a haven to raise their growing family. In 1978, after more than a year of searching for a family property, Walter came home and said, “Marijke, children, I have seen Paradise!” Thereafter, the 155 acres overlooking the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County, California became known as Paradise Ranch.

Paradise Ridge offers a naturally romantic setting. The 156-acre estate has sweeping views of estate vineyards and the Russian River Valley. An iconic two-story LOVE sculpture adds to the sophisticated wine country setting. Our events are curated to pair elegant wines with the magic of connective experiences.


Cocktail Attire is encouraged.

Him: A tuxedo or formal dark suit and tie.

Her: A long evening dress, dressy suit or formal cocktail-length dress.


Parking is available onsite but may be limited. Carpooling, group transportation or using a rideshare service is highly encouraged.
