SAXOPHONIST KENNY G TO PERFORM AT
27th ANNUAL EVENING UNDER THE STARS GOURMET FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL
Torrance, Calif., May 10, 2013 – World-renowned saxophonist Kenny G will serenade guests with his soulful instrumentals at the “Evening Under the Stars with Kenny G, 27th Annual Gourmet Food & Wine Festival,” Saturday, July 20. Hosted by American Honda at its Torrance campus, Evening Under the Stars celebrates the best in SouthBay cuisine while raising funds for nonprofit TorranceMemorialMedicalCenter.
“We are so grateful that American Honda has once again selected Torrance Memorial Medical Center to benefit from this longstanding community tradition,” Laura Schenasi, executive vice president, Torrance Memorial Health Care Foundation, said. “The proceeds advance our fundraising goals as we enter the final stretch of capital campaign toward construction of the new MainTower that will benefit the health care needs of the entire SouthBay.”
The Festival, presented in partnership with the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce, will take place from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $150 per person, $250 per pair or $4,000 for table sponsors (10 guests per table) and can be purchased by calling the Chamber at 310-540-5858, the Torrance Memorial Health Care Foundation at 310-517-4703, or by visiting www.TorranceMemorial.org.
Funds raised from the event will benefit Torrance Memorial’s new MainTower and Pediatric Services. This marks the eighth consecutive year Honda has chosen Torrance Memorial as the event’s beneficiary. In that time, Evening Under the Stars has raised nearly $700,000 for Torrance Memorial. Last year more than 800 community members attended, with $150,000 of the evening’s proceeds donated to Torrance Memorial.
