Festival of OC Chefs pairs fine food and wine with philanthropy
Over 500 foodies with a heart for KidWorks and an appreciation for fine food and wine--and the chefs who create it--experienced the Festival of OC Chefs on Oct. 3 at the Newport Beach County Club.
The sold-out outdoor event raised $602,000 net, which is already at work supporting KidWorks’ academic, spiritual and leadership programs for hundreds of underserved children and youth in central Santa Ana.
We are deeply grateful to our Presenting Sponsors: The Kay Family Foundation and the David A. Pyle Family along with our other sponsors.
We congratulate Chef Lindsay Smith at Nirvana Grille in Laguna Beach, who transformed her restaurant into a resource to provide nutritious food to those in need during the pandemic.
We also thank all the chefs and their restaurants who created specialty dishes for attendees to enjoy, along with their selections of quality wines.
The hardworking Festival of OC Chefs committee members and volunteers were truly remarkable and have our thanks.
Another Festival of OC Chefs is already scheduled for July 17, 2022 and sponsorships are on sale now. This event is guaranteed to sell out so mark your calendars.
