An Evening On The Beach Benefit This Thursday:

“An Evening on the Beach” to benefit St. Vincent Meals on Wheels is set to be one of this summer’s most anticipated culinary events in Santa Monica this Thursday, July 26 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The event will feature some of LA’s hottest chefs, tempting tastings off the grill, vintner tastings, specialty cocktails, great music, and crackling fires as the summer sun sets over the ocean.

Dress is casual, shoes are optional, and proceeds benefit St. Vincent Meals on Wheels who provides more than 4,700 meals daily to residents in the greater LA-area.

It will be held at Jonathan Beach Club located at 850 Palisades Beach Road in Santa Monica.

Special presentations will be made by Clark Staub of Full of Life Flatbread, the McGrath Family Farm with a ‘farm to grill to table’ spread, Jacqueline Buchanan of Laura Chenel Chevre, and Urbani Truffles, who will be showcasing black truffles, white and black truffle oils and truffle butter.
