The weather was a perfect 68° in Beverly Hills, at the Greystone Mansion. The BH Bar Association Barristers to Benefit the BH Bar Foundation and Public Counsel, put on a fabulous Wine Tasting & Hors d' oeuvres/ Silent Auction/ Live Auction Event, from 12:00pm - 4:00pm. Mark Kriski @ KTLA conducted the Live Auction, and he rocked it! He kept everyone awake and made it so much fun. He was able to increase the bids and people were in a tizzy over the fabulous items that were auctioned!
The Models from the show Deal or No Deal - Katie Cleary- Case 11, Patricia Kara - Case 9, Lisa Lakatos - Case 16, and Lauren Shiohama - Case 8, made the game "Wheel of Fortune" So much fun. Katie Cleary is a lovely person and was just so sweet. Patricia Kara has a great personality, and was just as accommodating and kind. Those two ladies had the personalities of true multifaceted jewels - beautiful.
The atmosphere was light and lively, it was filled with so much laughter and fun. LIOCO Wine Company, Peju, Quady Winery, Jaffee Estate Wines, Leonessee Cellars and Saint James Spirits were there, just to name a few. Lawry's the Prime Rib served the best Prime Rib Au Jus on mini buns, with their signature corn on the side. Il Fornaio had a fabulous Vegitarian salad and their fabulous desserts on the side. Marilyn @ Catered Occasions created Decadent Chocolate Bread Pudding Soufflé cups. Dandy Don's was there with his oh so delicious Ice Cream. Now you know I had to have a mini - scoop of the Cappuccino with fudge and Pecans and whip cream. I just had to. It was calling my name...I've just touched on some of the vendors.

If it is at all possible, don't miss the next one. You don't want to have any regrets regarding the kinds of wine that you select to serve with your vegetarian meal, or for you carnivores, the right bottle of Vino with that medium rare, or well done slice of beef, now would you?
