Golf Classic to Benefit The Culinary Institute of America
Thomas Keller’s culinary career is an inspiration to all culinary students. Thomas's passion for food and mentorship is matched only by his enthusiasm for golf. The CIA created the Thomas Keller Golf Classic to Benefit The Culinary Institute of America, a fun-filled event in the Napa Valley to raise scholarship funds for CIA students.
The one-day event kicks off on Monday morning with the golf outing at Silverado Resort and Spa, in a scramble format with a shotgun start, followed by dinner reservations at The Grove at The CIA at Copia. Last year’s event was a tremendous success. Festive and fun—with a healthy dose of friendly competition thrown in—the two days raised over $500,000 in student scholarships!
This year the tournament was moved to November 9th due to Covid. It was a beautiful fall day, sunny and warm. When we caught up with the golfers everyone was in great spirits, lots of laughs all around.

This is the 3rd year that Caspar Estate has partnered with Thomas Keller and Silverado Resort. We are proud to give this gift to the golf players as they are raising money and supporting the students at the CIA.
Deborah, Gingy and Dr. Ryan from the Culinary Institute of America, Austin. Richard Phoenix and Byron of Cultivar Wine and Caspar Estate were among the players.
Dianne Jones and Deborah Evans went out on the course after the golfers came in. Clearly a good time was had by all!
