(AllHipHop News) Hailed as one of the most anticipated annual events in Atlanta, Frank Ski’s Celebrity Wine Tasting and Live Auction fundraiser has been known to bring out the best of Georgia’s charitable givers. Previous years’ attendees and familiar faces have included Mayor Kasim Reed, Sean “Diddy” Combs, and Martin Luther King III, to name a few.

This year’s event, to be held today (December 2), will be hosted by a tag team of Hollywood elite couples. Actor Boris Kodjoe and his wife, actress Nicole Ari Parker, will co-host with former Def Jam CEO Kevin Liles and wife, Erika.

Frank Ski is notably known for being a radio host, restauranteur, and a veteran of positive contributions to his community.

The Frank Ski Kids Foundation provides children with the necessary education and hands-on experiences vital to furthering their ambitions. The foundation is responsible for hosting Ski’s annual “Youth Bowl” football game and awarding scholarship money to college-bound students.

Hip-Hop notables scheduled to attend include Young Jeezy, Akon, and Devyne Stephens. The wine tasting will feature rare and vintage varieties such as Silver Oak and Opus One.

The live auction boasts premium items, with some auctioned pieces from the past being authentic sports memorabilia, a chestnut Arabian horse and an exclusive VIP wine tour and dinner in Napa Valley, CA. This year’s auction items include studio sessions, gift packs, and walk-on movie roles. All proceeds from the auction and wine tasting go to further support the Frank Ski Kids Foundation.

The Frank Ski Celebrity Wine Tasting and Live Auction will be held today (December 2) from 3pm -7pm at Frank Ski’s Restaurant and Lounge. For ticket information or more about the Frank Ski Kids Foundation, visit www.frankskikids.org.
