“Dinner in a Lautner” offered at Gala
April 29, 2012
At the July 2011 Gala event, held at the Harpel residence, four special auction items were offered:
Intimate dinners in Lautner houses with well-known chefs (who donated their food and time).
The houses included were:
Sheats-Goldstein (won by Ryan Trowbridge with Tracy Beckmann). Chef: Corina Weibel of Canalé; wine selections by LOU. Dinner for 10 people. This dinner took place in December, 2011.
Schwimmer (won by Michaela Abrams). Chef: Onil Chibas of Elements Cafe; wine selections by LOU. Dinner for 8 people. This dinner has not yet taken place.
Rawlins (won by Eleanor Schapa). Chef: David Sanfield of Pitfire Pizza; wine selections by LOU. Dinner for 6 people. This dinner has not yet taken place.
Wolff (won by Eleanor Schapa). Chef: Anna Thomas, author of “Love Soups” and “Vegetarian Epicure”; wine selections by LOU. Dinner for 4 people. This dinner has not yet taken place.
These dinners were among the many interesting items offered at the auction, which also included original photographs by Helena Arahuete, a gift certificate to Hotel Lautner, a private tour of the Sheats-Goldstein residence, and many other valuable items. The Foundation plans to offer other similar dinners only rarely, because of the great amount of planning and coordination involved.
This is one of a series of articles on the events that took place during the celebration of John Lautner’s 100th birthday.
