A Cocktail Benefit: The Gift of Food for Japan

Next Tuesday, Umamimart, Yamazaki and The Eveleigh are cosponsoring a cocktail party to raise money for Second Harvest Japan, Japan's first food bank, which is providing food aid to the survivors of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Northern Japan. Earlier this month, a San Francisco version of this event raised over $10,000. There is no reason that Los Angeles cannot top that figure; organizers are hoping to double it.

Tuesday's event begins at 6pm with a small cocktail party hosted by Yamazaki Whiskey on the rooftop of PRISM, where you can enjoy the views as you sip on Yamazaki highballs and munch on appetizers from The Eveleigh and desserts by Fruit & Flour. At 9PM, the party moseys over to the back patio at The Eveleigh, where there will be an open bar of cocktails featuring SKYY Vodka, Partida Tequila, Campo de Encanto Pisco, and Combier, thanks to a generous donation of liquor.

Tickets are available for only $50 in advance and $75 a the door. You can purchase tickets here. If you can't attend the fundraiser, plan on stopping by the Eveleigh beginning at 10pm, as the patio bar will be open to the public, with all proceeds from the cash bar going directly to support Second Harvest.  For additional donations, exclusive limited edition posters and t-shirts will be available, designed by Clare Rojas.

This promises to be a very fun and delicious event and a wonderful way to help a worthy cause.  I have had Yamazaki before; it is one of my favorite whiskeys, and I can also vouch for the food and cocktails at the Eveleigh.  Whether you come for the cocktails or you come for the cause, please come and give generously.
