You’ve probably read all about the multi-million dollar mansions in Malibu, and you might have dreamed of living the luxury life in one of them. We know we have. Now you have the chance to actually experience some of the renowned homes for yourself, and support a great cause in the process. On Saturday, June 7, you’ll be able to cruise the coast in a shuttle with a docent to lead you on an exclusive “Living on the Edge” home tour of some of Broad Beach’s finest homes, to benefit the Venice Family Clinic.

Groups of 25 will visit five homes representing a design spectrum from cottage compounds to extravagant estates. They’ll end up at a reception at a private venue with amazing ocean and mountain views, where they will be treated to wine tastings from nearby Trancas Vineyards, and gourmet hors d’oeuvres. The amazing properties on the agenda include:
