Entertainment Aid Alliance (EAA) presented their annual Wine Wisdom & Vision at the iconic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.
The event started with a VIP reception in their bar area, lamb chops, beef Wellington and other goodies were served, along with a nice list of hosted cocktails, wine and Tito’s handmade vodka. In the main lobby area there was a silent auction item as well as the buffet, which included sumptuous roast beef and turkey at carving stations with a nice array of side dishes, salad, and pasta.
The entertainment was in the bar with featured awards and performances. I ended up winning quite a few of silent auction items so I was super excited. All of the attendees enjoyed the food and libation.
