An intimate evening with Andrea Bocelli and family

Nestled in a 4-acre, park-like setting in Burlingame is the stunning historic Kohl Mansion, which was the setting for a once-in-a-lifetime evening of music and fine dining with operatic superstar Andrea Bocelli on December 2. The evening benefited the educational programs of Festival Napa Valley and the work of the Andrea Bocelli Foundation, founded in 2011 and through which Bocelli leverages his deep connections and bonds of trust to help some of the world’s most disadvantaged people, children, and communities.
