21st Annual Wild & Crazy Taco Night Charity Event
25 chefs and 650 guests, Share Our Selves’ 21st Annual Wild & Crazy Taco Night on Thursday, April 10th, at Share Our Selves, was a delicious success! Orange County’s finest chefs lent their amazing culinary talents to this community event, which netted approximately $55,000 to support the SOS Food Pantry – helping feed OC residents at risk of going hungry.
The VIP pre-event was a festive affair. Participating guests received early entrance into the event, and the opportunity to sample every chef’s taco, Tres Sietes Tequila margaritas, and beer donated by Rudy’s Pub & Grill, before the rush.
The general event was as wild & crazy as ever! Guests mingled between the chef stations and bars – enjoying all of the unique tacos, lively chefs and music from DJ Drew Pierce. Event supporter, Kirk Buttermore, was the lucky of winner of the opportunity drawing prize – a Rastarita Margarita Party for 50, featuring the Rastarita Mobile Beverage Truck.
All of the proceeds from the event benefit the SOS Food Pantry, which collects retrievable food from restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, and caterers to distribute to low income Orange County residents. Six mornings a week, volunteer and staff drivers collect food from throughout the county and deliver it to SOS. Other volunteers package and bag the food for distribution to families. Five days a week, SOS gives out an average of 200 bags of groceries a day.
Brady Bunte of Tres Sietes supports this great cause and would like to thank all the other donors.
