Food & Wine
Kathleen Schaffer is the fiery force behind some of LA’s most memorable events.
“Let’s give them something to talk about” was the theme when the Southern California Chapter of Meetings Professionals International (MPISCC) gathered at The Beverly Hilton on June 7 of their 2017 Board Installation & Awards Gala. The evening lived up to that message with entertainment by The Amani Experience and Hey Miser DJ, opera singer Kala Maxym, the band STADIUM, and a surprise performance by the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. The threecourse dinner was complemented by pairings from Carmel’s award-winning Folktale Winery & Vineyards.
A bike retreat, Olympic venue, Nordic center and ice rink demonstrate peak possibilities.
