“I’m very excited about the lineup I’ve been able to put together for this, our 28th year; from the celebrity chef at our auction dinner to the Grammy and Academy Award winning artists appearing on the Festival stage,” said Cohn. “I’m thrilled about the quality of this year’s event and I think our loyal patrons will get more than their money’s worth when they attend this year!”
This year’s festival will be held in the memory of Lise Sonnen, a long-time supporter of the festival and a Cohn family friend. The festival’s olive grove stage will be renamed the Lise Sonnen Memorial Stage.
