On Thursday, August 4th, the seventh annual An Evening on the Beach, presented by Audi, with support from Douglas Elliman Real Estate, will return to the Jonathan Beach Club Santa Monica in support of St. Vincent Meals on Wheels of Los Angeles.
An Evening on the Beach is an unforgettable seaside celebration that showcases the best food and drink LA has to offer. Guests will have the rare opportunity to enjoy tempting bites from LA’s top chefs, curated vintner tastings, and carefully crafted specialty cocktails – all without needing to step off the sand. As the summer sun sets over the ocean, guests can unwind and dance the night away to live music and or relax by the crackling fire, confident that they are supporting a worthy cause. Dress is casual, shoes are optional, and proceeds will help provide over 4,000 meals needed to feed homebound seniors and other vulnerable residents across the Los Angeles area daily.
