SingularCity is proud to be the digital media sponsor for the 27th Annual American Wine and Food Festival, one of America’s premier culinary events that will raise funds for the Los Angeles Chapter of Meals on Wheels, which serves thousands of meals each day to homebound, senior and disabled citizens.
And now, we’re delighted to announce the winners in the drawing for two pairs of tickets to the 2009 edition of one of America’s premier culinary events where many of the world’s top chefs and wine and spirit purveyors will gather to support this worth cause.
Drum roll please:
The winner of two tickets, valued at $150 each, to the Friday Evening American Wine & Food Festival event is Andre Pittaluga, screen name Andre, who lives in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles. Andre is an international business consultant who emigrated from Italy to the United States about 20 years ago. He’s been a member of SingularCity for about a year and is a member of SingularCity’s Happy Hour Club, Love to Dance! and Traveling Bugs groups.
“I’ve never won anything in my life,” Andre said. “So this feels like winning the lottery!”
Andre and his guest will be attending the Red Hot Friday Kickoff Celebration at Voyeur, LA’s new, exclusive nightlife destination on Santa Monica Boulevard. Designed to whet the appetites of Festival first-timers and alums alike, this party offers chic eats by Wolfgang Puck Catering paired with terrific wines and innovative libations by Ultimat Vodka and Beam Global Spirits & Wines – all set to the sounds of a DJ playing great music. The intimate lounge setting is perfect for mingling with philanthropists and foodies who are newcomers and well-knowns on the Los Angeles scene. Tickets to the Red Hot Kickoff Celebration are still available if you want to join Andre and other SingularCity members at this event!
Another drum roll please:
The winner of two tickets, valued at $300 each, to the Saturday Evening American Wine and Food Festival event is SingularCity member Jolanta Sierra, screen name Eurochick. Jolanta lives in Marina Del Rey and works in a medical office. She said she’s only been a member of the SingularCity community for about two weeks and first came across SingularCity when she saw issues of the magazine.
“I decided to look up SingularCity and what enticed me to join was that it wasn’t a matchmaking website, but rather a friendly group of people with various activities that were of interest to me,” she said. “I really like the different groups and the easy way people can communicate there.”
Jolanta is a member of several SinglarCity groups including: Dating Europeans living in Los Angeles , EAT. DRINK. BE. , Fashion Sales and Faves , Girls, Guys & Grapes , Happy Hour Club , I Heart Bicycles , I Heart Hiking! , LADIES GET TOGETHER , Movies that make you think , Music Lovers , Pet People , Philanthropic Travel Opportunities , Saturday Night at the Movies , Traveling Bugs , Yoga For Life!
Jolanta and her guest will be granted entrance to the Universal Studios Backlot where, staged against the backdrop of movie sets, the signature Saturday night event will unfold. As dusk falls, a spectacularly lit movie set provides the stage for a culinary scene like none other: An unrivaled epicurean feast prepared by world-renowned chefs, superb libations including fine wines and smooth spirits, and a silent auction filled with luxury items – all set to swinging sounds of live bands.
She’ll be able to cap the night off in “The Lounge” – an after-hours retreat featuring sparkling wines from the Loire Valley Region of France and whimsical desserts by Pastry Chefs Francois Payard and Spago’s Sherry Yard – then kick back in cozy niches under the stars or dance the night away to live bands.
Look for the SingularCity table near the entrance to the Saturday Night event at Universal Studios, and at the Friday night party at Voyeur!
