September 26, 2010 is the date. The place: The Vicino House -- a sustainable, luxury home in Pacific Palisades overlooking the Santa Monica Bay. From 4-8PM, this amazing residence will host a fundraiser benefiting the Amanda Foundation Dog and Cat Rescue. Developer and owner Mike Gottlieb has not only taken green to a whole new level with this property, but he's going to be opening his brand new home to give back through a variety of events and fundraisers to raise awareness for worthy causes. By hosting such events, the Vicino House is not only raising money for important organizations but also offering an educational, rewarding and environmentally friendly atmosphere for all attendees where they can learn about and see first hand the green building practices used in the home.
The Amanda Foundation was founded in 1976 and has since placed thousands of homeless animals. It is a nonprofit organization that rescues abandoned dogs and cats who, through no fault of their own, are at risk of spending their last days at City and County Shelters. Mike has three rescue dogs of his own and is a long-time committed supporter of animal rescue groups.
After nearly four years of planning, design and construction, the Vicino House is one of the most spectacular green homes completed in Southern California. Mike worked with an incredibly talented team, which includes Tim McCarthy of Forma Design Group, Carl Thibault of Thibault Construction, and Kelby Bryant of Kelby Bryant Designs to bring the Vicino home to life.
Guests of the Vicino House will be treated to food, drinks, entertainment and a breathtaking view as well as an opportunity to check out all the eco-friendly companies and products that will be present. At this event, the Vicino House will feature products from: Nuvision (LED TVs), Planika USA (eco-friendly ethanol fireplace), Royal Pedic (mattresses), Bennett Floors, Twentieth (lighting), Lighting Zone (Cirrus fans), Eureka, West Coast Grass Distributors (cutting-edge synthetic turf), Chilewich, Newman’s Own Natural Foods, Every Man Jack, Dustin Otterbach Fine Art, Christopher Leomruno Photography and more. Additional sponsors to help you to wine, dine and shop for a cause include: Patron Tequila & Ultimate Vodka, AZIAM yoga wear, OM Dawg T’s and tanks, Paul Mitchell Pet Care, Café Rivva, Magnolia Bakery, Susie Cakes, and Zenergy Power Balls and more.
