Sotheby’s International Realty to Host Celebrity Charity Gala Saturday, March 12th

Proceeds to benefit the Education Advantage Foundation

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (March 1, 2005) – On March 12, 2005, from 4-8:00 PM, Sotheby’s International Reality will host an elegant and sophisticated charity gala for over 250 of Los Angeles’ elite. 

The invited guests will gather at a $9 Million home in the Sea Star Estates in Malibu (located at 6295 Sea Star Drive), one of the many elaborate properties that have become associated with the Sotheby’s name. Guests will indulge in an evening of luxury, beginning with wine tasting provided by Cakebread cellars, feast on a variety of sumptuous cuisine created by Josh Loebe of Taste-wine bar & seasonal kitchen, and bid on two of Ferrari’s latest automotive creations, donated by The Auto Gallery /Ferrari of Calabasas. Cakebread is also donating a case of wine to be auctioned off.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Education Advantage Foundation (EAF), a non-profit organization providing educational opportunities for at-risk youth in low- to moderate-income neighborhoods in the Los Angeles area. The EAF’s goal is to promote higher education by providing scholarships and no-cost after-school mentoring and tutoring programs to students in their homes. 

Invitations have been extended to various entertainment, music, and sporting talent of Los Angeles CEO’s, top entertainment executives, diplomats, attorneys, financial planners, talent managers and elected government officials.
