The 3rd Annual Autumn Party

October 17, 2012

Fashion and philanthropy united this October when CII Trustee Rochelle Gores Fredston, The Gores Group, and Philanthropic Society Los Angeles (PSLA) presented The Third Annual Autumn Party. The London West Hollywood Hotel’s rooftop was abuzz as host John Henson kicked off the night’s program which followed with the beautiful spring 2013 collection from J. Mendel, Paris. The evening continued with a dazzling cocktail party, music from DJ Alex Merrell, and a silent auction featuring stunning jewelry, exotic getaways and one-of-a-kind experiences. Enjoying spectacular views of the city, guests mingled poolside with hosted cocktails and hors d’oeuvres that included sushi from Nobu and chocolates from Vosges Haut Chocolat. All proceeds from the event benefit Children’s Institute, Inc. (CII).

Notable event sponsors include long-time CII friends Tom and Holly Gores, CII Trustees Tracey Gluck, Todd Rosen, Mari McAlister, Suzanne Marx, Gelila Puck and The Colleagues President, Alexandra Dwek. Corporate Sponsors included The Gores Group, LLC, Platinum Equity and Paradigm. In addition, product sponsorship was so generously donated by Andy Lecompte Salon, Audi,, Jouer, Pom Wonderful, Recuerdo Wines and Stone Brewing Co.

All proceeds benefit Children’s Institute, Inc.
