Each year, we host a unique event to raise monies and awareness for this remarkable organization. Last year, we partnered with our dear friends at Chateau Marmont in Hollywood to host an over the top wine dinner, an event featuring an extravagant meal prepared by the incomparable Chef Carolynn Spence paired with rare wines from our personal cellar.
The evening began with bubbles on the balcony overlooking the lights of the city and finished with a plate of sticky toffee pudding, not to mention more than $40,000 in the coffers for Foster Kids Fund. It was a great night indeed.
A highlight came when good friend Steve Nordhoff won the raffle for a 3L bottle of Schrader, and rather than taking it home, he generously offered to re-raffle the prize in order to raise more money. Thanks to the the enthusiasm and support we received from the fabulous Brian Acacio, we zoomed past our goal for the evening.
