Share Our Selves Wild & Crazy Taco Night - 4/22

Who doesn't love a good taco? Especially in this day and age when it's done a la food truck (i.e. Kogi or Taco Dawg,). The county has no shortage of places perfecting this portable lunch. For chain lovers, there's also local faves Baja Fish Tacos and Wahoo's. So when a non-profit wants to fundraise, what better delicacy to feature than this?

Costa Mesa charity Share Our Selves (SOS) provides free medical and social (food, clothing, financial aid, etc.) services to those in need of basic living essentials. Serving Orange County since 1970, it is a volunteer-based organization of over 400 individuals offering their time to assist those less fortunate.

The 17th Annual Wild & Crazy Taco Night will take place on Thursday, April 22nd at Halecrest Swim and Tennis Club. Over 20 chefs will be present for a little friendly kitchen competition. Who? I thought you'd never ask:

Proceeds from the event benefit the SOS Orange Aid Project. Founded in 1992, Orange Aid retrieves excess food from local food vendors and distributes to those lacking food security.

Tickets are $60 for general admission and $150 for VIP, with part ($35 and $100, respectively) of your ticket being a tax deductible donation.
