THE EVENT: The American Gold & Glory event is an exclusive gathering for all those who support the Olympic spirit and value the athletes who put their efforts into representing our country at the highest level. We will celebrate those who have won their Gold Medal, while providing support to those who will win their medal in the future. Attendees will include more than a dozen Olympic Gold Medalists from a multitude of sports and close to 200 individuals who support the sport and the Olympic movement from the L.A. area.
THE VENUE: The original 17-acre Kravetz Estate was the home of Oscar-winning director John Huston, which attracted Hollywood elites and movie stars of the day. The pool, which is the centerpiece of this event, was formerly used by artistic swimmer Esther Williams, known from the golden age of Hollywood films. This same pool will welcome performances by America's greatest young artistic swimmers as part of the evening's program.
The property includes stone from Huston's legendary film The Treasure of Sierra Madre as well as magnificently landscaped grounds on which the event will be held. The most unique aspect to the Kravetz estate, is one of the finest private railroads in the world. The beautiful estate railroad and steam engine was built by former homeowner Gordon MacLean and Walt Disney in the 1950’s. The engine is a Pacific Class, 7.5" gauge, working steam locomotive and train that circles the property, enabling guests as a means of travel throughout the event.
