Melrose Place Simply diVINE Tasting EventBy: Brittany Nicole La Hue
Want to enjoy gourmet food, upscale wine and spirits and designer shopping, all while giving back to a great cause?
You’re in luck. Simply diVINE Melrose Place is coming August 18 to the famous tree-lined street. You’ll be able to stroll down Melrose Place, sampling food from the city’s top chefs, sip on wine and pop into the street’s trendiest boutiques (like Marc Jacobs and Ports 1961) for some shopping.
For $100, you can purchase a General Admission ticket, which allows you access to all the tastings. Five hundred dollar Club VIP tickets offer guest admission to the event plus access to an exclusive wine tasting featuring hand-selected rare and high-end wines (held before the main event). You’ll also receive VIP seating during the tasting and free valet parking – but only 100 of these tickets will be available.
Most importantly, however, the proceeds from ticket purchases will go directly to the LA Gay & Lesbian Center. This charitable organization serves the LGBT community through HIV/AIDS medical care, homeless youth services, youth mentoring and development, cultural arts and education, senior services and much more. Your stomach and your conscience will thank you!
