On the night of March 23, we hosted our 7th annual Food Loving Guys and Gals Event at the newly opened Fullerton Community Center. We had over 250 people attending the event, which was plenty to keep our 20 amateur chefs busy serving appetizers, entrees, side dishes, and desserts.
Through sponsorships, a silent auction, opportunity drawing, and ticket sales, we were able to raise over $20,000 to continue serving the people in our community facing hunger and homelessness.
We also recognized First Christian Church, Fullerton for its legacy of support with the inaugural Friends of Pathways of Hope Award.
Chefs were judged by a panel of professional chefs as well as competing for the distinguished “People’s Choice Award”
Congratulations to all of the winning Chefs!
