Foodie Fest

| April 28, 2011 | Parties

The Olive Crest Kids held its annual fundraising gala at the Big Canyon Country Club in Newport Beach, attracting supporters of the children’s service organization and foodies alike. It was a night of haute cuisine and heartfelt words from regional trustee Steven Bernardy. Tasting global cuisine from gourmet stations scattered throughout the regal ballroom, guests also took in a live demo from Top Chef alum and fan favorite Fabio Viviani. Newport local Casey Reinhardt, a winner of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, delighted guests with her delectable, colorful cakes. Guests participated in live and silent auctions to net $220,000 benefiting Olive Crest’s Project Independence, a transitional living program that provides affordable housing, builds a support network and teaches essential life skills to foster youth.
