Enjoy ‘life’s precious beauties’ while helping others

This is Hospitality’s House big, big fundraiser of the year, and it should be lots of fun. The wines are from Indian Springs and will include some very special varieties. The music is pretty special, too, as local classical guitarist Brandon Yip joins the distinguished Los Angeles-based Martinai Trio (violin, viola and cello) in an evening of well-loved works in the chamber music repertoire.

Jan and Steven Roth’s Mekhaye Garden (Yiddish for “refreshment”) is relaxing to be in and lovely to look at, with its many floral and architectural Japanese nuances.

“This event offers many opportunities to enjoy some of life’s precious beauties,” said Joanna Robinson, Hospitality House board member. “The beauty of a wonderful garden, the beauty of great wine, the beauty of music under the sky and the beauty of helping people who truly need it.”

Hospitality House is an emergency cold-weather homeless shelter hosted by local faith communities that offers hospitality and dinners on a rotating basis. The shelter has been open two winter seasons (October through April) already. In addition, this summer it also offered a drop-in center.
