The 3rd Annual VINTAGE HOLLYWOOD food and wine experience will take place this Saturday (June 5) in Brentwood at the residence of former Los Angeles mayor, Richard Riordan. The gourmet festivities will feature premium wines from around the world and scrumptious dishes from several upscale restaurants in the Los Angeles area.
The $100-a-person fundraiser is being hosted by Quincy Jones, Courteney Cox-Arquette, David Arquette, Jon Favreau, Ben Stiller and former mayor Richard Riordan to help raise funds for "Caring for Children & Families with AIDS".
A live auction will compliment the evening with many wine-related items to bid on, including: Four wines from the outstanding 1982 Bordeaux vintage, each rated a "perfect" 100 points by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, a once-in-a-lifetime "wine harvest experience" at the Duckhorn Winery in the Napa Valley and a chance to join Richard and Nancy Riordan for an elegant dinner in their one-of-a-kind wine cellar.
Anyone who is in the Los Angeles area this Saturday can attend this event. If your a food and wine aficionado, this looks to be a great event. The ticket price is extremely reasonable for this kind of upscale fundraiser and the proceeds go to a really great cause ... besides, you might be able to rub elbows with some celebrities and politicians.
