March 21, 2017 – LOCALE Magazine – It was a night filled with food and charity. The Illumination Foundation’s annual OC Chef’s Table charity gala took place on March 12 at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel. The event brought out top chefs from around Orange County to raise money to build emergency houses for homeless families and give them the necessary resources to move forward. Over 30 tables were spread throughout the ballroom, each representing a chef, their restaurant, and the story their dishes told. With over 320 guests in attendance, including Kurt Russell, the event raised over $680,000 surpassing their original goal.
