Paradise Restaurant hosting Anthony Shadduck for AIDS Food Store benefit

Instrumentalist Anthony Shadduck will perform with his trio during “A Day in Paradise 4: An Affair of the Heart,” an all-day benefit for The AIDS Food Store, on Saturday, Oct. 1 beginning at 10am, at Paradise Restaurant and Piano Bar, 1800 Broadway.
Shadduck has worked with a long list of musical luminaries but also has a number of projects as a leader.
“For three years the community has supported and enjoyed ‘A Day in Paradise.’ Each year we work with Eric Davis, manager of Paradise, to bring the best in entertainment to our supporters. We are thrilled to have the Anthony Shadduck Trio this year,” said JaySun Howell, community relations chair for The AIDS Food Store.
“We are proud to support and host the fourth ‘A Day in Paradise’ charity event and contributing 20 percent of food purchased at Paradise throughout the day,” Davis said. “The dining room was completely full from 5:00 to 11:00pm the previous three years, so dinner reservations are a must.”
The all-day event will conclude with a raffle and auction between 5pm and 9pm. This year’s prizes include a 42-inch flat-screen television, an Apple iPad 2, Palm Springs getaways, tickets to Disneyland and gift certificates from Segway of Long Beach, Ralphs, The Sky Room Restaurant and The Crypt.
Mrs. Olson, the 39th elected Empress of The International Imperial Court of Long Beach, will return this year to host the event. Philip Manley of El Dorado Tortillas has donated a flight for this year’s auction. On weekends, Manley uses his private plane to ferry physicians to clinics in rural communities in Mexico and South America to provide medical care for men, women and children.
Raffle tickets are available at Paradise, Falcon Bar, The AIDS Food Store and Christ Chapel Long Beach. For restaurant information and dinner reservations contact Eric Davis at (562) 590-8773 or
