Former V-103 radio host Frank Ski, also a restaurateur and philanthropist, and his wife Tanya are partnering with music mogul Kevin Liles and his wife Erika to host the 10th annual Celebrity Wine Tasting and Live Auction, benefiting the Frank Ski Kids Foundation, Sunday from 3 to 7 p.m. at Frank Ski’s Restaurant and Lounge in Buckhead.

Previous years’ attendees and familiar faces have included Stevie Wonder, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Martin Luther King III. A tag team of the entertainment industry’s elite will host this year’s event including rapper, entrepreneur and actor Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges with co-host and UpFront Records founder Devyne Stephens.

“My wife Tanya and I are extremely thrilled to be celebrating a decade of hosting this fantastic fundraiser for the Frank Ski Kids Foundation,” said Ski, who is now on the air at WHUR radio in Washington. “Every year, we are so fortunate to have our friends and family attend this great event and we could not be more thankful for everyone’s generosity and support over the past 10 years.”

All proceeds from the auction and wine tasting go to further support the foundation, which provides children with hands-on experiences in science, technology, athletics and the arts, vital to furthering their ambitions.

It also hosts Ski’s annual Youth Bowl football game and awards scholarship money to college-bound students.

The restaurant is located at 2110 Peachtree Road.
