A Generous Serving

| December 27, 2011 | Parties

The manner of dress: chic and simple, black and white. The cuisine: gourmet Italian. Think octopus carpaccio, oxtail ravioli and veal osso buco served over risotto—a feast created by the Hilton Waterfront’s Jeff Littlefield and Cucina Alessa’s Alessandro Pirozzi, but of course! And what a party: The 250 guests who attended SPIN’s 22nd annual gala at the Waterfront in Huntington Beach raised $161,600 for SPIN (short for Serving People in Need). Now that’s a fitting end to a party dubbed Bella Notte.
