About Inspire Napa Valley

When wine industry tastemaker Kerrin Laz’s mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in 2014, she knew that she had to do something to help fight this disease. In 2017, Kerrin founded Inspire Napa Valley to raise critical funds and awareness of Alzheimer’s disease in the Napa Valley, with proceeds directed to support the Alzheimer’s Association. Join us in tackling the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only disease in the top ten causes of death without a way to prevent, cure, or slow its progression. Our goal is to raise more than $1 million to address this rapidly growing health crisis.
