Sweet Nectar

| August 17, 2015 | Parties

In the past two decades, Ladera Ranch-based Laura’s House has provided shelter and support to upward of 4,000 battered women and children, and counseling, education and legal assistance to nearly 50,000 individuals—and the money raised at its Wine & Dine benefit will further aid the nonprofit in its work to end domestic violence. Some 100 oenophiles gathered at the scenic Irvine home of Laura Khouri and Michael Hayde for the soiree, which uncorked 40 sips from Cowboy Canyon Winery (a rustic haunt nestled in Silverado) and Vino Paraiso (its selection is lovingly curated by Yvette and Nate Peo), among others. To pair? Artisan breads and charcuterie from Island Hotel, sweets from Valenza Chocolatier—and an almost $13,000 total to toast. Cheers! –Photos by Rocky Halim Photography
