Restaurant Participation Information for 2015 Long Beach Grand Cru

Dear Restaurant Owner and Manager,

We are thrilled to announce the 2015 Long Beach Grand Cru Public Tasting has been invited to the South Coast Botanic Garden on the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula. Our exciting new venue will provide an elevated and upscale atmosphere for the premier food and wine event of the summer season, to be held Aug. 8. This is a spectacular opportunity to showcase and market your restaurant to guests from throughout Southern California! Last year, over 800 food and wine lovers attended. This year’s expected attendance will be over 1,200.

The Long Beach Grand Cru is the only nonprofit International Wine Competition and Public Tasting, with all proceeds benefiting the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA).

Restaurant participation helps underwrite the Public Tasting and your participation is essential to the success of this event. Net proceeds from the Grand Cru will benefit the Greater Long Beach Community Medical Legal Partnership (GLBCMLP). LAFLA works together with The Children’s Clinic, a community health center for the medically underserved low-income community, to create family safety, stability and health for adult and child victims of domestic violence through coordinated medical, legal and social services. These underserved community members need our support.

For more information, please contact Maggie Davis at (323) 801-7916 or Please respond with the following forms (linked to below) by July 25 by printing out, scanning and emailing to or by faxing to 323-801-7945. This will help ensure inclusion in advance and ongoing publicity and advertising for your restaurant.

Thank you for your kind consideration of this request. I hope to see you at the Public Tasting!
