Now in its 33rd year and franchised in 20 cities across the country, Chick Singer Night offers performance opportunities to singers of all levels of experience. The format is simple: all female artists are welcome; all styles of music, all levels of experience, everyone. Each artist shows up the afternoon of the show, music in hand, and rehearses her songs with the CSN Band. Later that evening they hit the stage to a packed club and give the performance of a lifetime! Artists who helped CSN celebrate through the years include Norah Jones, Phoebe Snow, Paula Cole, Melissa Manchester, Lari White and Megan Mullally. CSN is a non-profit organization whose goal is to support and encourage women in music. All CSN city directors donate their time and services to organize, promote, and host each show. “All of us do this because we love music and we want to support female artists by creating a space and a stage that is free from competition or criticism,” says CSN founder Lori Maier. “Chick Singer Night offers women the opportunity to experience and expand their musical potential. We encourage women to make music, share that music, and in the end, become a new addition to the music scene.” Chick Singer Night is headquartered in Thousand Oaks, California.

Winefornia, a Napa Valley company, was founded by Viticulturist and Master Winemaker Cecil Park in 2007. Ever the pacesetter, she is the first Korean American Female Winemaker, produced highly rated wines, managed over 80 vineyards throughout Napa and Sonoma Counties, and in 2014 launched her own brand of award winning wines, Innovatus. Not one to rest on her laurels, Cecil set out to grow Winefornia through Consulting, Winery Development and Design, Private Labeling services (for sponsors, corporate events, restaurants) and continues entering Innovatus in Wine Competitions. To keep her focus on the vineyards and what goes into the barrels and bottles, Cecil invited Bay Area Entrepreneur Jeannie Kim, a restaurateur for the past 16 years in SF, to join Winefornia to handle all aspects of the business and the cuisine used for tastings, catering, and wine club events they tastings regularly produce.
