Five Acres® will be host its annual gala on Saturday, June 3rd at the private Molina Estate in South Pasadena. Guests of the “Red Carpet Affair” will enjoy celebrity treatment including a three-course meal with wine, a silent and live auction with special prizes, wine and jewelry raffles, live entertainment, dancing and more, all while raising funds to support Five Acres programs.
Multiple auction items will be available to gala bidders including a “Nashville” show package for two with airfare, accommodations and a “Nashville” set visit; a private catering extravaganza for 50; and a private dinner and organic margarita tasting for 10 with local chef Robert Simon. Luxury travel packages include a one-week Parisian stay on the Champs-Élysées; a week-long stay at a private beach condominium in Cabo San Lucas at Casa del Mar; a Catalina Island adventure for six; and a scenic sailing excursion around the San Francisco Bay with a gourmet lunch and regional wines.
Patrons will also have the opportunity to enter two exclusive raffle drawings at the event. With the purchase of a glass of champagne from the live champagne dress, guests will be entered to win a stunning 18-karat rose gold Pomellato Nudo blue topaz ring donated by Place Vendome. Guests may also “pick a card, any card” and be entered to win an instant wine collection including 30 bottles of exquisite wines valued over $1,500.
