A fun night out and a way to benefit a good cause, the 13th Annual Extravaganza for the Senses food and wine event will take place on Saturday, July 17th at the Sunset Gower Studios, and guests can score big savings if they buy tickets before July 1.Raising money to benefit The Saban Free Clinic (formerly The Los Angeles Free Clinic), the event will include unlimited samples of great food from over 40 top L.A. restaurants, like BOA, Jar, Angelini Osteria, Milk, Delphine, The Palm, Takami Sushi and Robata, Upstairs 2, Susan Feniger’s STREET and Dr. Bob’s Ice Cream (just to name a few). Plus sip away the evening with wine from over 80 wineries, and enjoy live music, fortune readings by mystics, photo booth and a silent auction.
So what's the cause? The Saban Free Clinic provides free quality health care, dental and social services to the most vulnerable members in the Los Angeles community. With 100% of Extravaganza proceeds benefitting the Clinic, the Clinic will be able to continue to provide services to thousands of men, women and children in need.
Here's how to save some bucks: Until the end of June, tickets are $80 general admission (remember, great food & wine for a good cause) but will go up to $100 on July 1. There's also a VIP option for you higher rollers, which gets includes VIP parking, early VIP entry into the event, and seating in the exclusive VIP guest area overlooking the event; those go for $200 through June, and are $225 as of July 1.
