30th Annual Day for the Queen Annual Fundraiser to Benefit Orthopedic & Neurosurgical Navigation System


Napa, CA – Queen of the Valley Hospital Foundation will host the 30th Annual Day for the Queen on Friday, August 17, 2007.

Day for the Queen is a celebration of life in the beautiful Napa Valley, and it’s one of the most anticipated events of the summer.  The festivities will take place at the world renowned Silverado Resort.  Sports enthusiasts enjoy tennis and golf tournaments, while others delight in the afternoon luncheon and wonderful fashion show. A festive dinner, auction and dance round out the day.  "It’s exciting to be involved with an organization that continues to address the current and future health care needs of the community," said Liz Davis, Event Chair.

One of Napa Valley’s most popular fundraisers, "Day for the Queen" can be credited with greatly improving the quality of health care in Napa Valley for the past 29 years, having raised more than $1.2 million.  Proceeds for this year’s event will benefit Orthopedic & Neurosurgical Navigation System at Queen of the Valley Medical Center.

"Computer navigation improves outcomes in joint replacement surgery by improving the accuracy of each step of the procedure.  As a result, our patients are allowed to return to a more active lifestyle sooner and can achieve long lasting pain relief into the future," said Dr. John N. Diana, Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon.

This year’s theme is Disco with the Queen and will begin with golf at 7 a.m. followed by a luncheon and fashion show.  The evening will end with a BBQ dinner and dance - all at Silverado Resort.  Tickets can be obtained for individual activities or as a package by calling 251-1882.  Sponsorships and premium tables are available as well.
