In just five minutes, more than $39,000 was raised for Share Our Selves’ Food Pantry and its programs for the underserved. It’s a figure that was gleaned during the fund-a-need portion of the nonprofit’s Celeb Chef Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Surf City, and it’s proof that the 300 foodies in attendance were hungry to help—and nosh. And that they did: There was a Muscovy duck pot pie from Mark Gagnon and Paul Squicciarini, and a braised beef short rib from Dustin White and Louie Jocson. For dessert? Butterscotch pudding from David Man, Carlito Jocson and Adam Feirman, and a final tally of $159,000 net. Ah, so sweet. –Photos by Reza Allah-Bakhshi
