BEVERLY HILLS—Celebrate the launch of foreverylily fragrance, inspired by experiences that were also the basis for a book of the same name. Beth Nonte Russell chose two very different ways to tell her story of traveling to China and becoming an unexpected adoptive mother. There's a fragrance introduction and a book signing, and the event benefits the Golden Phoenix Foundation, a charity dedicated to helping end child abandonment worldwide. The event is Thursday from 6pm-8pm at Mickey Fine Grill and Pharmacy, 433 N. Roxbury Drive [Racked Inbox]
