Since 1930, the Active 20-30 Club of Napa has been a part of Napa Valley. Through events and fundraisers, the Active 20-30 Club of Napa contributes both time and money to projects in support of children in the community. The Club organizes complimentary annual events for children, including a Fishing Derby and an Easter Egg Hunt at Kennedy Park. Our biggest hands-on project, Project Santa, is an annual gift-giving project for mentally, physically, or financially disadvantaged children. Additionally, each year the Club awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors using proceeds from our fundraisers.
Project Santa – Friday, December 8, 2017
For more than 35 years, the Active 20-30 Club of Napa has been purchasing clothes and toys for local underprivileged children through our Project Santa. Typically, we supply gifts to over 125 children in Napa County. The Club and Santa Claus visit children with special physical or severe financial need. Each child receives warm weather clothing and a toy purchased specifically for them, and is invited to sit on Santa’s lap for a special photo.

George Carl Kids Fishing Derby – Sunday, Date TBD, Spring 2018

Another free community event, this long-standing tradition began decades ago by George Carl to introduce the sport of fishing to young people. Today, it has blossomed into a day of good–old fashioned family fun. Children ages 3-16 have from 6:00 until noon to catch the biggest fish they can. Club members and other volunteers are on hand to help less experienced fishers. Prizes are given for different age groups and different species of fish and EVERY child goes home with a prize for participating.
