It’s amazing. Last week Drive Out Hunger kicked off with the goal to raise 1,000 lbs. of food in just two weeks. Amazingly, that goal has already been met! So now, we have bigger & better goal – 3,000 lbs. & In an effort to help us meet & beat this new, crazy-high-but-totally-doable goal, we are working with Saturday Night Foodies, The Cupcake Activist, Diary of a Mad Hungry Woman, Gourmet Food Truck, Marian the Foodie, Save the Food Trucks & Savored to bring you Celebrity OC DinDin-A-GoGo. Imagine this… 19 gourmet food trucks & more than a dozen celebrities all coming together to help us bring awareness to the hunger crisis happening right here in Orange County.
THIS Wednesday, November 17th OC DinDin-A-GoGo is being super-sized. From 4:30 – 9:30pm, in the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater parking lot (8808 Irvine Center Drive, Irvine, CA), all of your favorite gourmet food trucks will be gathered together, serving delicious food & collecting non-perishabled canned or dry good items to be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. Not to mention all the celebrities that will be on hand to take pictures & sign autographs for a donation of 10 non-perishable canned or dry good items, per person. In addition, there will be a silent auction, and participants will have the opportunity to bid on Lakers and lady Gag tickets, vacations, and autographed art, just to name a few.
