Simply diVine At Melrose Place
Posted by Colleen Park on Jul 25, 2012 - 10:05:46 AM
Taking place August 18, Simply diVine has been previously held at Two Rodeo Drive
MELROSE—Melrose will feature an evening of wine and
fine cuisine at the seventh annual “Simply diVine,” the Los Angeles Gay and
Lesbian Center’s (LAGLC) annual fundraiser on August 18.
Sponsored by Wells Fargo and benefiting the LAGLC and their services
for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community,
this August will mark the event’s first time at the venue in Melrose Place,
after being hosted for many years at Two Rodeo in Beverly Hills.
“Like in past years, Simply diVine will bring
together many incredible restaurants and wineries,” said Chef and Event Co-Chair
Susan Feniger, who owns
participating restaurants STREET and Border Grill, in the press release. “It’s
still an evening with decadent tastes, delightful aromas and wonderful
people—but this year we’re taking over the chic, charming Melrose Place
cul-de-sac to accommodate even more people.”
While participating restaurants, breweries and
wineries will be announced August 1, past events have featured fare from Tres
by Jose Andres, Vina Robles, and Alta Maria. In addition to the main sampling
event running from 7-10 p.m., 100 VIPguests will enjoy a special two-hour tasting
of high-end wines at Marc Jacobs Collection from 5-7
Besides fine dining, guests can
take part in a silent and live auction, also benefiting the efforts of the
LAGLC which include homeless youth services, HIV/AIDS medical care, youth
mentoring and development, seniors services, and more.
