Art, Wine and Giving! The non-profit organization Tag Gallery presents a wine tasting event to benefit another non-profit organization, Safe Passage. “The Art & Beauty of Giving” features the work of artists Pam Douglas, Julienne Johnson and Sculptor Camey McGillivray. Art lovers, wine connoisseurs and the novice will have the opportunity to further the vision of Safe Passage and their extraordinary legacy.
Safe Passage has transformed the lives of hundreds of women and children, helping them break the cycle of domestic violence. Safe Passage and Founder Trish Steele recently received The President’s Volunteer Service Award. President Obama’s commendation thanked Safe Passage for their devotion to service and for doing all they can “to shape a better tomorrow for our great Nation.” Safe Passage was also honored in 2011 by Los Angeles City Controller, Wendy Greuel, and Los Angeles Councilman, Dennis Zine, as well.
“The Art & Beauty of Giving” sponsors include Dr. Fardad Forouzanpour of The Beverly Hills Cosmetic Group, and John Wurts Financial Services. Actress and TV Host Brenda Epperson will conduct interviews during the Red Carpet arrivals, including award winning actor Kiko Ellsworth, who is also the founder of You Inspire Me, Inc.

TAG offers extensive exhibition opportunities through the gallery and off-site venues, exposure to prominent members of the art community, and inclusion on its website. TAG has been a resource for launching the careers of both emerging and mid-career artists.
