Napa, CA – The Aster Club, an exclusive, world-class legacy club for highly successful business families held it’s spring meeting on April 7, 2016 at the Contursi family’s Arrow&Branch Estate Vineyard.

Twelve families from around the globe gathered in Napa, California and listened to the profound works of impact organizations such as WE’VE, Self-help Federal Credit Union and Building Community Bridges in creating economic opportunity and uplifting people’s lives.

Families listened in keenly and were fascinated by each other’s ideas on how to create positive social impacts during the Aster Club Spring Meeting.

The families also shared their own experiences in using investments as a vehicle to create positive social and environmental impact. Many of the families are committed to improving the lives of the younger generation through education, entrepreneurial training, sports and arts. A focused discussion among the families sprung many ideas on what more each family can do and how they can collaborate to create the maximum social impact and reach more people and organizations who are in need. The families were all inspired by all the stories of ‘doing well by doing good.’

The families also had a lengthy sharing and discussion on investments from each family. Members of the club enjoy this great benefit of having direct access to deals originating from the members themselves, or sourced by either the members or the club.

A special dinner for the families was prepared by Napa-based Chef Eric Magnani. The families enjoyed the intimate outdoor dinner by the vineyard while sipping Arrow&Branch wines.
