There’s a chance for some star-spotting too, as Jamie Foxx, Tyra Banks and Lisa Ling attended last year’s festival. Bombay Sapphire is a partner in the event, so expect plenty of cocktails. Tickets can be purchased online at www.luckyrice.com. Create, 6021 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles.
The Southwest Voter Registration Education Project is hosting its annual fundraiser Sabor de las Americas on July 17.

Proceeds go to benefit the SVREP, which provides voting services in Latino communities. The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. and tickets can be purchased online at svrep.org/sabor.
