The second annual PERSIANS 4 CURE Garden Party Gala will be from 7-11 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 29 at a private Beverly Hills residence.

Founded by Manizheh Yomtoubian, the nonprofit foundation raises money to educate the Persian community on how to prevent and screen for cancers; and to support cutting-edge research to improve cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship for everyone.

TV host Karla Gordy Bristol of shows such as Beverly Hills View and Karla Dawn Live, along with Persian radio personality Dr. Farhang Holakouee are promoting the event that will feature cuisine catered by Volare and cocktails and wine courtesy of the Shokrian Vineyard, Darioush Winery and El Fogonero Tequila.

Entertainment will be provided by America’s Got Talent finalist Magician Fantastic Fig, with mind reading and card tricks, and comedian K-von, termed “the most famous half-Persian comedian in the world,” who has also appeared on Netflix and a viral TED Talk.

Eight-person LD Daf Ensemble by Arezno Kochakan will supply music for the evening.

The event will also include dancing and a silent auction with gift certificates donated by local businesses, including one for $500 toward hair services at KIM VO hair salon inside the Montage Beverly Hills.

Tickets are $200 with all proceeds going to PERSIANS 4 CURE.
