ICON 4X4 'Cars & Casino' Event Saturday, May 13 In Los Angeles Shows & Events Sponsored Post written for aBlogtoWatch by advertiser.

So, what happens when you combine top-shelf bars, a bunch of interesting modern and vintage watches, and custom cars from the top builders in L.A.? Add to that the best food trucks in town, an epic auction, casino tables, DJ & dance floor, and 400-500 fun people. You get Cars & Casino, the 4th annual party hosted by ICON at their headquarters to benefit the GO Campaign children’s charity!

ICON 4X4 'Cars & Casino' Event Saturday, May 13 In Los Angeles Shows & Events

As the founder of ICON, and GO Campaign board member, I have thrown this party for a few years now to raise money and awareness for GO. GO is a hyper-efficient charity that Gives Opportunity to children in the U.S. and abroad by identifying and supporting local heroes already making a difference in their community. This is the future of philanthropy, not the fat and wasteful corporate charity organizations. Proud to be a part of it.

Let’s focus on the watches, shall we? As a major watch addict and designer, I have made some great friends in the watch community. Many of them have stepped up to join me in my efforts for Cars & Casino. We have a great collection of unique modern and vintage watches donated to our event this year. Even if you cannot make it to the event in Los Angeles at 7 PM on May 13th, 2017, you can still bid on them via our online auction here!

Horage

Recently launched by Andi Felsl and his team, Horage is a brand-new Swiss brand here to disrupt the conglomerates and strengthen the independent watchmaker community. They make their own movements – even the mainsprings! In fact, they make everything in-house. They have kindly made us a few watches for the auction. In person, their quality and details are outstanding.

Bespoke Watch Projects

Our friend John McConnico at Bespoke Watch Projects up in the Bay Area provided us with two unique variants of his popular Sub 60 and Super 60 watches.

This Sub 60 is a special build of this watch featuring an engraved (silver-filled) dial, white-lumed hands, red small seconds hand, and a limited edition 6497 ETA anodized black movement, which is super cool.

MHD

Lauded automotive designer, Matthew Humphries, donated two of his automotive-inspired watches, the MHDCR1 and the MHDSQ1. While they run a quartz movement, it is hard to beat their sense of style and quality construction at the price point.

    I dig that Solar Wind.

  • Raymond Wilkie

    I get a very unpleasant taste in my mouth when i hear when rich folks get together under the banner of doing good and hold some benefit for vulnerable children ( they are after all the future ). Just think ” You combine top-shelf bars, a bunch of interesting modern and vintage watches, and custom cars from the top builders in L.A.? Add to that the best food trucks in town, an epic auction, casino tables ( gambling at a charity event is just wrong ) , DJ & dance floor, and 400-500 fun people.” and not a vulnerable kid in sight as you dance the light away with your vintage watch on and your unjustified over inflated sense of ego. Give the money straight to the charity you douche bag.

    • SuperStrapper

      It’s a shame you obviously don’t know anything about charity or charitable events, and override that ignorance with blind smearing and hatred.

      Hey, give me money for charity and go away = $5 in donations that week

      Throw an event, add good food and entertainment, swirl it with a networking/socialising opportunity = millions in donations that week.

      Charity casino events generate enormous amounts of money for worthy causes. So it is actually just right to have gambling at fundraisers. The point of fundraisingis to get people to open their wallets. Most people, like yourself, prefer to open their wallets if they know it’s a 2-way street.

      5 minutes of research could go a long way in saving yourself from looking like an idiot.

      • Raymond Wilkie

        I don’t need 5 minutes. These elite social occasions wrapped in a cover of charity, where people out do each other with expensive cars and watches and dressed by Dior and Hugo Boss for a right good knees up for all these poor kids. You want a party, just have one. Want to make a difference ? get more hands on ,…………if it doesn’t interfere with your social life. i don’t want to fall out over this.

        • SuperStrapper

          In that world, a massive amount of chaitible donations disappear forever. Just so you know.

    • Well it is kind of hard to parade a bunch of kids from our program with empty cups in their hands looking for donations. Without doing some sort of event that appeals to people with money available to support us, we would not get far my friend! We will have several of our local heroes on hand to tell their stories. So when one of our project heroes won the Nobel Prize, was she supposed to decline the invite to the gala or go and try to reach more people to tell her story which in turn helps the kids?

      • Raymond Wilkie

        I am not denying the right for anyone in good consciousness to get together for the greater good and try to make a difference, particularly on such an unpalatable subject. Do you really need the party atmosphere and expensive toys to attract the ” people with money ” if so then shame on them .

  • Mark1884

    Well….. I like watches, cars, food and having a few drinks. Count me in!!
    Looks like a good time to me. If it helps some kids along the way, great.
