To celebrate its 31st year, California Spirit will bring together renowned chefs from Los Angeles’ best restaurants, vintners from California’s premier wineries, and unique creations from LA’s top mixologists. California Spirit has grown into a spectacular gourmet gala featuring fine cuisine, premium California wines, live entertainment, and live and silent auctions filled with top shelf experiences, goods, and services. California Spirit is one of Southern California’s largest fundraising galas. Over the past 30 years it has raised more than $15 million for the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving cancer research, early detection and prevention education, and free patient service programs.

For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what we’ve learned through research and turning it into what we do, we have contributed to a 15 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and 2005. That means that we helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created the potential for more birthday celebrations. Overall, 13 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year.

Now that’s a reason to party, so join us!

We hope to see you there!
