After the north bay wildfires in 2017, we were in search of an answer as to how to help on a greater level; we collaborated and brought together this incredibly passionate group to create a way to raise much needed dollars - and the RISE UP SONOMA team was born.  


We are a passionate group of dedicated people pulled together to rise up, lift our community and our spirits, and create an incredible evening in Sonoma County benefiting those deeply affected by the devastating fires.  This group consists of chefs and restauranteurs from San Francisco and Sonoma County’s most influential dining hotspots, compassionate neighbors, friends, family and community members, together with world-class wineries in Sonoma County, producers of the rarest and most sought after wines in the country. 

The RISE UP SONOMA team has banded together for a special evening to raise badly needed funds.  The event is a one-of-a-kind evening of delectable wine, food, and rare auction items, finished with a sensational concert led by some of music industry’s legendary artists.

100% of the net proceeds from the RISE UP SONOMA event will be distributed directly to the following charities in support for victims:
