Dinner at FIG Restaurant

Sunday, March 26, 6:30pm

Join us at FIG Restaurant at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows, a Santa Monica favorite. The evening will feature a prix fixe menu created by executive chef, Damon Gordon, and a wine pairing curated by the Ed Foundation's long-time partner hotel.

Enjoy a plated appetizer, family-style entree and decadent dessert. Dinner will be paired with red and white Bordeaux blends from the Paso Robles region.

This is a limited opportunity to enjoy this American bistro serving rustic, yet refined cuisine that is a favorite of the local community.

This special dinner is part of a series of events leading up to our annual Santa Monica Wine Auction on Sunday, May 7, 2023 right here at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows. To help us prepare for the Wine Auction, we are asking guests to bring a bottle of wine valued at $80 or more to donate to the auction.

Cost: $125, plus a bottle of wine valued at $80 or more to donate to the wine auction.

You can donate wine in three ways:

  • Bring a bottle to the event

  • Purchase wine for the auction from The Wine House. The Wine House has been a partner of this event for seven years! They have curated a select set of wines for you to purchase for us to sell at the silent auction. See the list HERE. In addition, they will donate a portion of the proceeds from these wines to the Ed Foundation. Important! When making your purchase, select "In-Store Pickup" and please write "SMEF Wine Auction" in the Special Instructions box so the wine will be set aside for the Ed Foundation.
  • Donate funds directly to the Ed Foundation and they will purchase a bottle for you. You can do this here on the checkout page when purchasing your ticket.
