Event Details

This November, we will commemorate four decades of Global Partners’ and World Runners Internationals’ work in East Africa with a celebratory harambee at John Ash & Co. in Santa Rosa, California. Please join us for entertainment, silent auction, exceptional food, and, of course, amazing wine. Contact Global Partners at (707) 588-0550, [email protected].

How to Get There

Additional Information

Where should I stay?

Vintners Inn (https://www.vintnersinn.com), a luxury hotel located on the same property as John Ash & Co, has offered us a 15% discount (2 night minimum). For info on how to book discounted rooms, email [email protected].

Rooms are available at Hampton Inn Windsor (very close to the event venue) for $239/night: https://hamptoninn.hilton.com/en/hp/groups/personalized/S/STSWIHX-VTV-20181109/index.jhtml?WT.mc_id=POG.

We also have a room block at the Holiday Inn Express Windsor (https://www.ihg.com/holidayinnexpress/hotels/us/en/windsor/winca/hoteldetail). To book, call the hotel at (707) 838-8800 and request the “Global Partners for Development Block.” Email [email protected] with any questions.

What should I wear?

The dress code is black tie optional, which calls for dark suits or tuxedos for males and gowns, cocktail dresses, or dressy separates for females. We are looking forward to getting dressed up to the nines and celebrating with everyone!

P.S. We care more about having you there than what you wear. If dressing up isn’t your thing, please feel to wear whatever makes you comfortable.

Are there any other events throughout the weekend?

Yes! Peter and Noni Verbiscar-Brown have generously offered to host brunch at their lovely house on Sunday morning (10:00 a.m.) following the event. For more information or to RSVP, please email [email protected].
