The Harvest Inn in St. Helena hosted The Napa Valley 750: The Wine Country Road Rally April 11-16, which raised $ 90,000 for the St. Helena Hospital Foundation as part of the road rally-related charity component.

The limited edition vehicles included a 1953 Porsche 356 “Outlaw”, a 1954 Austin Healey 100, a 1957 Jaguar D-Type, a completely original 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC, a 1970 Porsche 911S, a 1974 DeTomaso Pantera GTS and a bright yellow 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB / 4.
This year’s rally sponsors included Ferrari from San Francisco, Reliable Carriers, Inc., Hanson Bridget and govino.
Harvest Inn Co-Owner and Napa Valley 750 Road Rally Director, Rick Kaufman, said of the year’s experience, “When auto enthusiasts come together, bonds often form and through our shared experiences we want to give back to the communities that support us. The services they offer provide a blanket of health security that allows us to stay calm at night, drive safely during the day, and trust that we know they are there for us when we need it. We feel very privileged to be able to support the St. Helena Hospital Foundation in this way and we wanted to recognize the hard work our healthcare workers do for our community every day. “
