Sharing Success by Giving Back
For almost all of their 30 years in Sonoma Valley, Carol and Sam Morphy have lived just a short walk down the block or around the bend from the Sonoma Community Center. Long before their lives were infused with the delicious smell of Red Grape pizza dough rising in the searing hot ovens at their landmark restaurant, it was all about the kids, and that meant daily trips to the elegant, historic structure nestled at the outside edge of Sonoma Plaza and Sonoma’s east-side neighborhood.
“We helped start Presentation School, that first year, and our kids got to school there, and went right into it. That was the first experience with the Community Center. We lived just down the block, and the kids were young and everything was focused around school.”
So, as their life forms a perfect pizza-style circle with the announcement of their selection as the 2020 Muse(s) for Sonoma Community Center, Sam and Carol respond with their characteristic humility.
“I told them there must be about a thousand people who are more qualified,” say Sam, and Carol agrees adding, “We really prefer to fly under the radar.”

We hope everyone had a wonderful time on Saturday and we truly appreciate all the support, it’s a vital element for us to continue offering the programs and events enjoyed by so many people throughout the Valley.
