Ready to eat and drink for a good cause? I know it sounds too good to be true, but it's legit, and I'm totally going!

Extravaganza for the Senses is a fundraising event held annually to benefit the Saban Free Clinic, (formerly the Los Angeles Free Clinic) and features food from 40 Los Angeles restaurants and wine from more than 100 wineries. The presenting sponsor is the Wine House -- which I visit quite often -- and I'm guessing that's where the spectacular variety of wine is coming from. The Edison is the VIP sponsor, which you'll hear more about in a second.

The event will be held from 7-10pm on July 19th, tickets are $100 and 100% of proceeds goes to the clinic, which serves Angelenos in need with comprehensive medical, dental, mental health care and social services. VIP tickets are also available for $225 and for that, you'll get access to the VIP lounge with special seating, food and drinks -- hosted by The Edison.

So, bottom line: $100 gets you in to the party, lots of food and drinks, and all of this is so the Saban Free Clinic can continue to serve your fellow Angelenos. Don't miss out, and if you see me there, don't be a stranger.

Tickets are available until 5 pm on July 18th, visit or call 323-330-1670 for tickets.
