CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
To Our SOS Wild & Crazy Taco Night Patrons,
Thank you for sponsoring, purchasing tickets to, donating to, and/or underwriting our event. As a nonprofit organization, your continued support means everything to us.
At this time, we have decided to it is best to cancel this year’s event and look forward to bringing you a wonderful Celebrity Chef Dinner and 50th Anniversary Celebration on October 2nd.
Wild & Crazy Taco Night is a major fundraiser for our Social Services programs, including the SOS Food Pantry, and the loss of revenue from this event will be a major loss for us. We anticipate seeing a tremendous increase in need in the community, as schools close and children lose their access to school meals, workers stay home without pay, and the homeless face this dangerous virus without a safe place to self-isolate. Our services including food, financial relief such as rental and utilities payments, and homeless services are there to help our neighbors face these challenges.
Even those who may not have ever needed to go to a food pantry or ask for help paying their rent may find it necessary in the next few months to come to SOS, and we want to be able to provide these vital services to anyone who may need them so that the Orange County community can stay strong together.
We understand that these are challenging and uncertain times for everyone, but if you are able to, we urge you to use your ticket purchase as a donation to SOS.
All of the funds raised from this event directly support our Social Services programs, and without them we are unsure how we will able keep up with the demand we are seeing for our resources.
Additionally, we know that this crisis is deeply affecting all of our wonderful chefs who donate their time, talents, and food to this event every year. We ask you to please consider ordering food from them, buying a gift certificate to get them through this tough time, or checking their websites to see if they have other ways to show support.
Please fill out this survey to let us know if you would like to donate your ticket purchase to SOS or if you would like us to issue a refund. And thank you once again for your support.
