2015 Cars & Casino

Reaching New Heights

More than 250 guests turned out for the 2nd Annual Cars & Casino on Saturday, May 2nd at the ICON Workshop. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, guests and donors we raised over $100,000, triple the amount that was raised last year!

Cars & Casino was hosted by celebrity and comedian Joel McHale. Our guests enjoyed a rare opportunity to be among ICON’s hand-crafted classic utility vehicles while enjoying music by DJ Daye Smith, great food and drinks, plus craps, blackjack, roulette tables, and an unbelievable silent auction room.

Our silent auction room was the hot spot of the evening with over 50 items valued at over $70,000 from Moore & Giles, Brown Safe, Rare Gourmet Meats, Definitive, CIRQ Winery, Dan Duehren Enterprises, Oakley, Capsule, Stefan Bemer, Ranch 4.0, Penthouse, Hasselblad Bron, Inc. and many more!

A BIG thank you to our sponsors, Tarazi Specialty Foods, Bolour, Salem Partners, Azadeh Shladovsky, Panavision, Galpin Aston Martin, and Imperial Capital, LLC. And special thanks to our wine, liquor and beverage sponsors, Highland Park, CIRQ Estate, Nello Olivo, Tank18, Zico Beverages, Kosta Browne, and Terroir.

This couldn’t have been possible without the support of our incredible Event Committee including our dedicated hosts Jamie and Jonathan Ward of ICON.

We’re so grateful to the many people who contributed to making the night such a grand success. Cars & Casino was such a big hit we’ve already started planning for next year!
