Sunday, July 19th, The American Cancer Society will celebrate its 30th year of the California Spirit fundraiser. From 4pm until 8pm, CalSpirit will transform Sony Pictures Studios into a wonderland of gustatory delight. Hosted by James Beard Award-winning chef, author and television personality Rocco DiSpirito, the event features tastes and pours from LA’s best chefs, mixologists and vintners.

The lineup is stellar, including many classics along with some new restaurants we are excited about, like Neil Fraser’s Redbird, Michael Kahikina and Rory Hermann’s Barrel & Ashes, Lemonade, Knuckle & Claw and ICDC, whose creative donuts are creating some serious buzz. Favorites include Tavern, Picca, and Bouchon Beverly Hills, which will be represented by none other than Thomas Keller.

“For more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. The California Spirit 30 fundraiser aims to raise funds to continue to support incredible research that leads to finding a cure for cancer.”

CBS Studios 10202 W Washington Blvd Culver City, CA 90232
