A Night at the Gallery-Asian Breast Cancer Awareness

They say it is better to give than to receive, and last Saturday, Privy Circle was at its best.

For one night only on Saturday, October 15th, Privy Circle, in conjunction with City of Hope, hosted “LEXUS NIGHT AT THE GALLERY,” a Fashion.Art.Music benefit to raise money for the National Asian Breast Cancer Initiative (NABCI). Privy Circle was able to raise over $12K for NABCI! In addition, we helped raise an addition $8K for City of Hope, thanks to a considerable donation from the Synn family

By Privy Concierge

Privy Rockin' Eve 2016

Privy swung into 2016 with full ferocity.

Privy had a thriving 2015, so we are all excited about what ambitious milestones are inevitably in store for 2016 - and we have the inside scoop that Privy is revealing first-class surprises in the new year! Last year, we hosted elaborate Rémy Martin and Hennessy Tasting Dinners, a Perfect Pairs Wine Dinner with event partner Chase, a Drinks ‘n’ Chatter night benefiting Nepal's devastating earthquake, a sophisticated Mooncake and Tea Pairing in San Francisco, a Halloween Monster Masquerade Ball benefiting the National Asian Breast Cancer Initiative, a Charity Poker Event hosted by Joe Hahn of Linkin Park, and a special night of Bach at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. It was only fitting that Privy ended 2015 with a night of gold-and-white-themed splendor.
