On Saturday, April 27th, 2013 more than 750 guests attended Casino Angeleno hosted by the Junior League of Los Angeles (JLLA) at the Petersen Automotive Museum. Angelenos and celebrity guests (including Pandora Vanderpump-Todd and Scheana Marie from “Vanderpump Rules”, Candace Cameron Bure, Catherine Giudici, Paul Stanley of Kiss and UFC fighter Kenny Florian) enjoyed casino games, chef's tastings from local restaurants including Top Chef contestant Fabio Viviani's Firenze Osteria, Fatty's Public House, Georgetown Cupcakes, and Susie Cakes, a silent auction, dancing to the beats of DJ Gabriel Diggs of the Mondrian, and more. The highlight of the evening was a live dance performance by "So You Think You Can Dance" stars Kent Boyd and Kathryn McCormick. All funds raised directly benefit the JLLA’s projects that improve the health and education of women and children with community partners such as: Aviva Family and Children’s Services, Children’s Bureau, Children’s Institute, Inc., Daybreak, HOLA and Mar Vista Family Center.
