Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2009
Angels in the Vineyard (an evening of culinary delights, music by top performers and fine wines), benefiting the Elevate Hope Foundation, (bringing music and the arts as therapy to abused and neglected children) will take place on Saturday, August 8, 2009. The beautiful South Coast Winery Resort & Spa, in Temecula California's accredited wine country will host the event.
Celebrity guests include co-hosts Eva La Rue of "CSI Miami", and Jack Coleman of "Heroes," Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants, performances by Sheila E. and special guests including Wendy Melvoin (of Wendy & Lisa), and DJ Rashida. More celebrity guests will be announced as the event nears. Sponsored and supported in part by Ringo Starr's Lotus Foundation, Winifred & William O'Reilly Foundation, and CPTransportation, Elevate Hope Foundation is offering further sponsorships of Angels in the Vineyard (corporate and otherwise) to help make the evening a resounding success.
"When children are given the opportunity to freely express themselves artistically, they suddenly see themselves as healthy, happy and whole individuals," said Sheila, "We've found at Elevate Hope, once children are given the gift of artistic expression, they are encouraged. We can help ensure these children stay on track and receive the tools they need to have healthy and happy lives."
The ultimate goal of Elevate Hope Foundation through this event and others is to raise essential capital to build the Compassion Care Center of the Arts. A plot of land has been offered to EHF, bringing more urgency to the cause.
