American Honda hosted its 28th annual Honda Evening Under the Stars Gourmet Food & Wine Festival on Saturday, August 2 at its Torrance campus.
A favorite summer tradition, the event celebrates the best in South Bay cuisine. This year, restaurants included: Depot/Buffalo Fire Department, Disneyland Resort, Doubletree by Hilton Torrance-South Bay, Fresh Brothers, Gourmet Grindz & The Good Cookies, Honda Classic/PGA Tour Professional Wines, Il Fornaio, Island Eats Hale Aina, Jackson's Food & Drink, Kincaid's, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Ortega 120, Palos Verdes Golf Club, Paul Martin's American Grill, Red Car Brewery & Restaurant, Rock & Brews El Segundo, Rock N' Fish, Salt Creek Grille, Zinc @ Shade, Sushi Chef Institute, and Torrance Marriott South Bay.
Approximately 80 varietals of wine were served, including Honda Classic/PGA Tour Professional Wines and Riboli Family Wine Estates and San Antonio Winery. Sommeliers from The Disneyland Resort educated guests about wine.
A silent auction offered deals on entertainment packages, sporting events and memorabilia, dining, travel, local outings and specialty items, and a raffle for letting a charity win a 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid EX-L with an MSRP of $31,905.
Multi Grammy winners Tia Carrere and Daniel Ho performed hits from their Hawaiian music albums along with performances by KealiI Ceballos and Halau.
Event proceeds benefit Torrance Memorial Hospital's new $450 million, 398,250-square-foot Lundquist Tower and Pediatric Services scheduled to be completed this November.
This marks the ninth consecutive year Honda has chosen Torrance Memorial as the events beneficiary, and Evening Under the Stars has raised nearly $900,000 for Torrance Memorial. Last year a sell-out crowd of more than 1,000 community members attended, with $200,000 of the evenings proceeds donated to Torrance Memorial.
