Joel McHale to Host GO Campaign’s Star-Studded Vintage Hollywood Food and Wine Fundraiser Supporting Local Heroes

Giving back goes glam on June 8 at The Park Santa Monica, where Go Campaign will hold its signature food and wine event, Vintage Hollywood. Hosted by actor and comedian Joel McHale, this party with a purpose brings together celebrities and philanthropists for an evening of bites by Michelin-trained chefs, wines from prestigious vintners, and fundraising for Go Campaign’s Local Heroes project.

McHale, a longtime supporter of the GO Campaign, emphasizes the event’s dual purpose. “This star-studded soirée isn’t just about glitz and glamour; it’s about making a real difference in the lives of vulnerable children,” McHale says.

Scott Fifer, Founder and CEO of the GO Campaign, underscores the event’s significance to their broader mission. “GO Campaign is a $2.5 million organization, but with so many deserving heroes, we have to say no to nearly half of the requests we receive,” Fifer says. “Our goal is to become a $5 million organization in the next two years. With increased support, we can assist 100% of our Local Heroes—remarkable individuals who include Nobel Prize winners, CNN Heroes, and African Visionaries.”

One hundred percent of Vintage Hollywood’s proceeds go to the Local Heroes project, which provides financial assistance to everyday heroes making a tangible difference in their communities, from supporting foster teens to combating gang violence.

GO Campaign secured a powerful sponsorship grant to maximize the night’s fundraising power. Donations received in the lead-up to Vintage Hollywood on June 8 will help the organization double the impact of sponsorship dollars. Even if you can’t attend the event, your dollars can make a significant impact on the GO Campaign’s Local Heroes fundraising goal.

GO Campaign’s Vintage Hollywood is generously sponsored by Judith Hayward and Michael Parks, Roden-Ardalan Family, Venable LLP, Ronald Gladden, Robert Scott, Ronald Sampson, and Sam and Bri Shephard.
