Tomorrow is the big day; about 20 celebrities, 19 food trucks, and an incredible silent auction will be ready to help Drive Out Hunger. If you are interested in getting into the celebrity autograph area all you need to do is bring 10 cans or non-perishable food items (or $20 donation) per person. If you want to come just for some of the amazing gourmet food truck fare, the trucks will be ready for you.
Parking is free, and free admission to get to the gourmet food trucks. If you can bring cans to support, please do. Every non-perishable food donation helps! So far, we have raised over 1300 pounds of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. We are hoping to raise a whole lot more! Proceeds from the silent auction go to Second Harvest Food Bank.
This is still an OC DinDin-A-GoGo, so please bring your chairs and picnic tables. Also dress warm, we want to make sure everyone has a great time. There is tons of space to spread out. We do not know how many people will be attending but there is plenty of space. Expect there will be lines for autographs and food trucks. Bring the family and make a night of it.
