Dinner to raise coin for Save the Children and Virgin Unite

Anglophiles will be in fine fettle this week as BritWeek events kick into high gear.

A glitzy highlight of the celebration of all things British in California will be Thursday’s gala dinner honoring Virgin Group boss Richard Branson, a man who wears his “entrepreneur” label well.

The dinner at the Beverly Wilshire will raise coin for two charities: the global relief org Save the Children and Virgin Unite. The philanthropic arm of Branson’s Virgin Group focuses on social and environmental issues.

Sked for the evening includes a live auction of exotic travel packages and a perf by “American Idol” alum David Archuleta.
