We are delighted to welcome our new members for 2019. Provisional co-chairs Marian Hall and Phyllis Sherwood introduced Lorene Testa, Robin Stirling and Sara Neuman at our January Installation luncheon at the beautiful Palos Verdes Golf Club.
Taking place at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, it will be an extraordinary night of music, fine wine, gourmet tastings and desserts from TGIS and, of course, fabulous friends with whom to share the experience.
As always, music is at the heart of our events and this Fall Fundraiser will be no exception. “Café Musique” – featuring Brynn Albanese and Duane Inglish – are known to ignite their audiences with their unique musical blend, ranging from tango to wild classical pieces.
Put the date on your calendar! Tickets are $135 and will go on sale in mid-September.

Their performances – more than 200 a year – are as much social gatherings as musical events. Andy & Renee, as a duo, and along with their band, Hard Rain, have taken their unique sound to venues all over the world.
They have won numerous awards with their 15 CDs, including “Best of the Beach” for several years running.

We are proud to present our annual ‘jewel in the crown’ – the Grand Salon – to be held Sunday, June 3, 2018 from 5 to 8 PM
This elegant event will be held at a spectacular oceanfront estate on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Fine wines and delectable food tastings from selected South Bay gourmet restaurants will be offered prior to a world-class musical performance.
Our annual Grand Salon is celebrated not only for superior music, wine, food, and conviviality, but also as an opportunity to bid on unique Silent Auction prizes. All proceeds benefit youth music education programs in the South Bay.
This year’s activities and prizes range from:
- exotic member-catered meals will transport you from the best of southern California cuisine – with chimes! – to the regions of Italy, or on safari in Africa
- enlightening outings include the Irvine Museum collection of California Impressionists, a tour of Homeboy Industries, or a world-premiere King Tut exhibition at the California Science Center
- join a party with a difference, whether Paint and Pinot, Birding and Photography, or the ever-popular Oktoberfest
- get away on a break to Cathedral City, the Central Coast, Paso Robles – both with wine tastings! – or perhaps you fancy the west coast of Ireland
- entertainment packages include Hello Dolly!, Tennessee Williams, and tickets to the Ahmanson, Glendale Center Theater or the Hollywood Bowl
- and the list continues with golfing packages, spa packages, unique take-home pieces including freshwater pearls, a Philippi bowl, an Artiphon instrument (look it up!) and iconic Hollywood Bowl posters
In addition, we will be holding a LIVE AUCTION immediately prior to the musical performance, for two nights in a two-bedroom Oceanside Casita at Terranea.

During a time of social unrest, there was Woodstock 1969. Great minds of the music world met and shaped the future of American culture. This timeless music, 48 years later, still makes us cut loose and dance. July 15, 2017 was a gorgeous evening on the Peninsula—the perfect time and place to recreate that era with a picnic on the lawn and the music of Andy & Renee and the Hard Rain Band.
