A nonprofit organization established in 1988, the Santa Monica Mountains Fund supports the education and resource protection efforts of the National Park Service and the California State Parks.

Last summer, researchers discovered two newly born lion kittens near Malibu. The benefit will be held at the Santa Monica Mountains Visitor Center at King Gillette Ranch, 26876 Mulholland Highway in Calabasas.

According to organizers, a live mountain lion will be joining guests at the event along with interactive displays, food and wine. Admission to the fundraiser is $100 for adults and $25 for children under 12. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit
