Tribute Dinner & Celebration at Inglenook Estate
Honoring Molly Chappellet & Robilee Frederick Deane

On Saturday, December 4th, nearly 150 attendees gathered at Inglenook Estate for Icons of Design, Music in the Vineyards’ first-ever holiday gala honoring two Napa Valley Icons: Molly Chappellet and Robilee Frederick Deane.

The dazzling celebration included a candlelit dinner in the estate’s barrel room with festive décor designed by Erin Martin, a fundraiser auction, and a special tribute video honoring the iconic women, produced by the Coppola production company American Zoetrope. Attendees also enjoyed a virtuoso music performance by violinists Maureen Nelson and Daria Adams, followed by dancing to live music by Garuda Blue.

Thanks to generous attendees, sponsors and donors, Icons of Design raised more than $220,000 for Music in the Vineyards (MITV), whose mission is to enrich people’s lives through the power of music.  Proceeds from the gala will support the musicians who make the acclaimed Napa Valley chamber music festival possible, and whose livelihoods were at stake during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the annual festival,the organization offers robust community outreach programs including its String Quartet Fellowship Program and community concerts, weekly open rehearsals, scholarships for talented local music students, and more.

The auction featured two “buy-in” lots and there are a limited number of spaces still available for A Sizzling Night Out at HALL, Rutherford on Saturday, February 5th and Roll Over Beethoven on Saturday, June 11th.

Icons of Design was sponsored by Anne & Matthew Golden, First Republic Bank (Diamond Event Sponsor), Steph Martin & Dennis O’Neil, Checkerboard Vineyards, Kathryn & Craig Hall, HALL Wines, Erin Martin, (Platinum Tribute Sponsors), Steve Juelsgaard & Lori Cook, and Deborah & William Harlan (Gold Tribute Sponsors).  We are also grateful to our hosts Francis Ford and Eleanor Coppola who so graciously offered their beautiful, historic estate for this event, and whose support of MITV and decades-long relationship with our honorees made the night truly special.
