San Diego Food Bank

Chefs, Cork & Craft Gala

April 25, 2020 | San Diego Food Bank’s warehouse facility

The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank’s annual gala, this year themed “Welcome to the Roaring 20s,” will celebrate the arrival of a new decade while paying homage to the style and energy of the Roaring 1920s. Chef Sara Polczynski will lead a team of 30 chefs during the dinner service. Each table of ten guests will be assigned a chef who will act as that table’s personal chef for the evening, preparing a multi-course dinner of signature dishes. The evening will include exciting entertainment, amazing silent and live auction items, and the gala’s now famous cocktail lounge in the Food Bank’s 50,000-cubic-foot refrigeration unit. Live musical guests will include The Jim Gibson Band and Mercedes Moore & The Mystery Band. Proceeds from the gala will support critical hunger-relief programs including the Food Bank’s new Diaper to Degree Program that provides emergency diapers, resources, and food to families and youth living in poverty in San Diego County. Co-chairs are Ellen Gruer and Cindy Hickman. sandiegofoodbank.org/gala
