The 7th annual Celebrity Chefs & Wine Tasting event will take place next Thursday, October 20, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Casa Vertigo in Downtown Los Angeles. Hosting the event is Children’s Bureau, a nonprofit leader in the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect. Since its inception, the event has raised nearly $1.5 million to support Children’s Bureau’s mission to prevent child abuse and uplift vulnerable families and communities.

Once again, a number of our favorite chefs are on the bill: Gino Angelini (Angelini Osteria), Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken (Border Grill), Ray Garcia (Broken Spanish and B.S. Taqueria), Bruce Kalman (Union Pasadena and Knead & Co. Pasta Bar + Market), David Lentz (The Hungry Cat), and Steve Samson (Sotto and Rossoblu), plus many more we are excited to try for the first time. The 500 guests will also enjoy distinct selections of world-class wines from over 20 wineries , live and silent auction items, and live entertainment. Cocktail attire is recommended.

“Tickets to the general event are $250 per person. Guests interested in upgrading to the Sommelier Suite for premium wine tasting at the event can purchase tickets for $500 per person. The Sommelier Suite is an exclusive event within the event that offers a number of rare wines from around the world poured from 1.5 Liter and 750ml formats hosted by a variety of Sommeliers.” Get your tickets here.
