June 18, 2018 – Illumination Foundation’s popular OC Chef’s Table gala will be expanding again – in size and in number of chefs – for its March 3, 2019 event.
The Disneyland® Resort will be hosting the expanded event again, proving a committed, extraordinary sponsor for the increasingly popular event.
“In past years, we’ve enjoyed our event at the Disneyland® Grand Californian, but so many chefs want to be a part of this now that we had to look for even larger space at the Disneyland® Resort,” says Illumination Foundation Marketing Director Terry Campbell.
For the March 3rd evening, 42 chefs will be individually serving 10 guests at the landmark Disneyland® Hotel.
By expanding to accommodate another 10 acclaimed chefs, Illumination Foundation will be able to invite another 100 guests. The event has proven so popular that it typically sells out months in advance – with 10 more tables, the organization hopes to reach all those people who have tried and been denied in the past because of the fast sales.

Why OC Chef’s Table Is Such a Hit
Presented by Disneyland® Resort, The OC Chef’s Table is the year’s most anticipated event for two reasons:
1. The most lauded chefs of Orange County are all together in one room, pulling out all the stops to create the most memorable, magical dining experience for their guests.
2. These chefs return again and again for Illumination Foundation’s OC Chef’s Table because they’re ready for homelessness to be over.
The non-profit organization, Illumination Foundation (IF) was founded in 2007 with the sole mission to Break the Cycle of Homelessness.
In an effort to help IF with this vast, growing crisis, the greatest chefs of Orange County first came together in 2008 for the inaugural OC Chef’s Table.
Since then, the chef numbers have been expanding in ranks as these great chefs share the news with their lauded peers. They continue to return, giving generously of their time and culinary talents toward a specific need in the homeless community that Illumination Foundation immediately acts on.
