On Tuesday, February 19 join us on our first Napa LGBTQ Seniors walk! We’ll take a 40 to 45-minute stroll down through the Oxbow Commons. The entire way is paved with only very occasional moderate ups and downs that are eased by wheel-chair accessible ramps as well as stairs.
In addition to purchasing tickets, you can support LGBTQ Connection by volunteering for the event or setup or donating silent auction items (especially wine country food, wine, hotel stays and tourism packages)! Event attendees of the event must be 21+.
