THANKS IN PART to the magic of Hollywood, Hronis Ranch brand table grapes got a strong supporting role in the 10th annual San Gennaro Foundation Feast of L.A., a three-plus day Hollywood event to raise money for Southern California charities and organizations.

As a major sponsors, Hronis grapes and company signage received major media coverage in California’s Southland during the Sept. 2012 event.  Star-power included the likes of TV personality Jimmy Kimmel, comedian Adam Carolla, co-hosts for the event, and guests such as Joe Mantegna, Andy Garcia and Robert Davi, actor and singer/performer introducing his new album.

With Italian culture and culinary skills showcased at every turn, the Feast L.A. was founded explicitly to raise funds for Southern California food outreach, at-risk youth programs, families in need, shelter and housing, scholarships and education and, of course, Italian culture. 

Highlights for the Hronis, Inc., brand, Hronis Ranch, included multiple special Southland TV promotions for the event, especially Allie McKay’s KTLA Ch. 5 morning news interviews with talk-show celebrity Jimmy Kimmel in the Hronis booth with table grapes and signage visible. 

During the Thursday night Prima Notte VIP launch event, Kimmel and co-host Adam Carolla received an on-stage “thank you” from the Foundation for their untiring efforts in promoting the gala and handling the successful Prima Notte night auction.  The gift, an engraved “Cup Runneth Over” chalice, was filled with Hronis Ranch table grapes.  Visitors to the evening gala and the three-day Feast L.A, were treated to Hronis’ premium red, black and green table grapes.

The event was held in a large area just behind Jimmy Kimmel Live! studio in Hollywood and the ABC Jimmy Kimmel Live! Show, aired on th night of the Prima Notte gala, featured clips from live performances by Daryl Hall and other features of the festival.

Maggie Lane, Hronis, Inc. public relations representative, was included in a number of elements of the Prima Notte evening, including guest shots with attending stars, including actor/singer Robert Davi who showcased his early operatic training in a performance of songs from his new album “Davi Sings Sinatra” with the Pat Longo Orchestra.

Pete Hronis, Hronis, Inc. vice president of sales/marketing, said the event was well worth the investment, “not only for the excellent brand visibility, but because the company was able to help so many different needs in Southern California.” 

This year was the 10th annual event and reports indicate attendance and donations excelled expectations, according to San Gennaro Foundation Executive Director Ann Potenza.  Progressively stronger in both attendance and donations, Ms. Potenza explained that in the first nine years of the event, the foundation raised $750,000 and supported 35 separate area charities and organizations. 

“With the economy the way it is, we weren’t sure how attendance or donations would be, but with the beautiful weather, publicity and draw of the show, itself, I think we have surpassed our expectations,” she said.  By all accounts, so far, it looks as though this year they have raised $250,000 and attendance reached approximately 50,000.

Feast of L.A. was created in keeping with the spirit of the nearly century old New York Feast of San Gennaro, an annual celebration of Italian culture.
