More than 700 guests enjoyed specialty tacos from 16 celebrated Orange County chefs featuring libations from CaliFino Tequila, Deschutes Brewery and New Belgium Brewing’s Fruit Smash hard seltzer. Hosted by the Share Our Selves Foundation, the event was held on Thursday, May 19, at OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa.
Once again, this foodie tradition raised over $100,000 in support of Share Our Selves social services. The comprehensive services address issues including food and housing insecurity and overall wellness of our neighbors who are low-income and experiencing homelessness.
Guests tasted curated tacos exclusively for this event with the opportunity to vote for the Yelper’s Choice Award “Fan-Favorite Taco” presented by our Premiere Sponsor, Yelp. This year’s winner was Chef Fonzy De Zuniga of Descanso. Chef Fonzy De Zuniga proved to be a fan favorite winning his second year in a row. This year serving up a creation of duck birria, habanero red pickled onions, cilantro, edible flowers and gold flakes on a cheese crusted blue corn tortilla.
We thank our generous restaurants, beverage partners, and sponsors for their generous contributions to benefit the 29th Annual Wild & Crazy Taco Night!
