"Twenty years of success committed to the caring and feeding of people is a moment of greatness long to be treasured," commented Karen McGlinn, executive director of Share Our Selves.
The 20th anniversary Celebrity Chef Dinner unfolded Oct. 9 at the Hilton Hotel, Costa Mesa, attracting a sold-out crowd coming to experience one of the most important dinner events on the Orange Coast.
For more than two decades the SOS Celebrity Chef Dinner has become a fall tradition that embodies the best spirit of philanthropy in Orange County. Citizens from all walks of life, wealthy and not so wealthy, come together to support a program that, day in and day out for 365 days in the year, works to support the most basic of human needs.
On hand for the special evening was Jean Forbath, founder of Share Our Selves, who was honored for 40 years of service to the organization. Forbath has been referred to as a visionary and an advocate for social justice, addressing the needs of the poor in Orange County.
