Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at the Taste of Larchmont Pavillion set up in the farmers market parking lot at 250 N. Larchmont Blvd.

Volunteers Patricia Carroll, Julia Christiansen, Jane Gilman, and Adam Rubenstein have been buzzing around for weeks gathering donations from local businesses for raffle prizes and a silent auction. The Buzz is a proud sponsor and donor to this Larchmont tradition that helps feed our neediest neighbors.

“We are excited to have so many generous donations from our local community,” HopeNet board member and raffle chair Patti Carroll told the Buzz. So many, that she has bundled a few special items together for the grand prize that she is calling a “Cozy Holiday Spirit Grand Prize.”

“It features dinner for 2 at Marino Ristorante — thank you Sal and Mario –, a Christmas Tree, Stand, and Wreath (valued at $300) from the Wilshire Rotary, Absolute Caviar – 4 Oz Tin Caviar, Blinis, Creme Fraiche and spoons, a case of Peake Ranch Pinot Noir donated by Gil and John Wagner and fabulous games from WE donated by Ron Reyes,” explained Carroll who also gave us a sneak preview list of all the silent auction items that will be available tonight.
