A four-night`s stay at Isabel Goldsmith`s ultra glamorous retreat in
Mexico fetched $20,000 this week at The 3rd Annual BASH For NY`s Bravest.
The event, held Monday night at Ian Schrager`s Hudson Hotel in New York
City, drew lots of celebrities and plenty of cash to benefit The Leary
Firefighters Foundation (founded by actor Denis Leary), which provides
funding and resources for fire departments to obtain the highest level of
equipment, technology and training as well as to provide resources to the
families of firefighters who have perished or been injured in the line of
duty. Proceeds from the event are targeted to aid the FDNY in repairing
and renovating training and educational facilities and to support the
department`s need for new equipment. Danny Masterson who plays Steven Hyde
on “That 70`s Show” and his co-star Wilmer Valderrama (who plays Fez),
were the winning bidders.
Las Alamandas is located midway between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo on
1,500 acres of pristine tropical paradise with only six villas (11 suites)
accommodating a maximum of 22 guests. Guests rarely catch a glimpse of one
another as they enjoy lush tropical gardens, warm Pacific breezes, and
seemingly endless white-sand beaches.
Las Alamandas is the creation of Isabel Goldsmith, daughter of the late
British financier Sir James “Jimmy” Goldsmith, and granddaughter of
Bolivian Tin King Don Antenor Patino, who developed Las Hadas (where the
movie “10” was filmed).
Recently named “Hideaway of the Year” by Andrew Harper`s Hideaway Report,
and one of “The Most Romantic Hotels in the World” by Forbes, Las
Alamandas has become a favorite escape for the elite traveler and some of
the world`s most famous celebrities including Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston,
Robert De Niro, Don Johnson, Sean Penn, Nicolas Cage, Courtney Love, and
Sting, just to name a few.
