Red Carpet: Copia hosts inaugural ball

Copia’s ‘Wine Baron’s Ball’:

Copia: The American Center for Wine, Food, and the Arts, held its first auction and dinner, the “Wine Baron’s Ball,” to honor members of the most distinguished wine families.

The inaugural ball was held at the St. Regis Hotel to attract a wider audience of wine and food connoisseurs. Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception, dinner and live auction.

The 25 auction lots featured wine selections, celebrity-chef dinners and exclusive getaways.

Boutique opening doubles as benefit

Tory Burch Opening: The opening of Tory Burch’s San Francisco boutique last Wednesday doubled as a philanthropic event, with 10 percent of proceeds being donated to California Pacific Medical Center’s “Wishes for Wellness.”

Attendees included Tory Burch, Marissa Mayer and Zack Bogue, Sloan Barnett, Carol and Shelby Bonnie, Sharmin Bock and O.J. Shansby.

Shady art up for auction

Gump’s ‘Made in the Shade’: Gump’s, the eclectic design store in Union Square, handed basic lamp shades to an array of artists, designers and celebrities and asked them to create one-of-a-kind works to be auctioned off on behalf of the California College of Arts.

Guests were treated to food and drinks during the silent auction, followed by the fashion show and live auction where models strutted down the runway with the featured lampshades on their heads.
