Under the welcoming shade of a weeping willow and surrounded by vineyards and flower beds, members honored Impact100 Sonoma founders Annette Lamont and Christine Dohrmann for their vision and tenacity in forming our organization that – ten years later – has become one of Sonoma Valley’s largest funders. In addition, every past President of Impact100 was able to attend (except for BJ Bischoff who was out of town) and be acknowledged for her contributions to growing and shaping the organization.
Impact100 presidents past and present: Gera Vaz, Lynne Lancaster, Sydney Randazzo, Celia Canfield, founders Christine Dohrmann and Annette Lamont, Wendy Hoffman, Judith Walsh
Penny D’Allaird once again hosted this favorite summertime event and, this year, as the kick-off celebration of “Ten Years of Impact”, there were a few surprises – live piano music provided by Impact member Paula Szoka, a gorgeously decorated 10th Anniversary cake that was cut by the founders, a special “All about Me” drawing of products and services won by guest Joei Malpass, sumptuous food prepared by member and former-professional chef Tracy Reynes, and of course wines from top local vineyards.

Ten years worth of thanks go to many people for the success of the lovely afternoon - All of the members who purchased tickets to attend and who bought raffle tickets that raised $3210 to support our growing organization’s operating expenses; host Penny D’Allaird; members Barbara Chatham, Jerica Tercero and Joanne Warren for donating the items in the drawing; Don Sebastiani & Sons and Landmark Vineyards for wine; and all of the Event Committee volunteers.
