THE Event Calabasas

Calabasas was the place to be on Friday, June 1, as guests gathered at the Calabasas Civic Center for THE Event, a sophisticated soirée under the stars, benefitting The Foundation for Las Virgenes Schools. Now in its sixth year, The Event, sponsored by The Agency, Westfield Topanga – The Village, Polacheck’s Jewelers, Barry’s Tickets, Farmers Insurance, Calabasas Style magazine, and more, drew residents, business owners, and community leaders for a festive evening of gourmet food and wine tastings, auctions, and entertainment. The city’s charming central courtyard proved the perfect setting for the sold-out, block-party-style celebration. Guests enjoyed tastings from premier local restaurants such as Brent’s Deli, The Six Chowhouse, Ladyface Alehouse and Brasserie, Toscanova, and The Grill on the Alley while perusing one-of-a-kind silent and live auction items. A beer garden offered refreshing sips from local craft breweries, while an exclusive Agency lounge served as a refined hangout between tasting. The evening, emceed by NBC Sportscaster Fred Roggin, culminated with an amazing live concert performance that had guests dancing all night long.
