Welcome to Table For Ten!  Doesn’t everyone dream about having a well-known local chef create a custom dinner just for them and their friends? Yes, of course we do!  Well, there will be 350 lucky guests who get to do just that to create their very own Table for Ten!  This very special philanthropic event will be held on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at the clifftop Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa. Most importantly, this event will benefit Make-A-Wish® Orange County and the Inland Empire.

About The Event-

This is the 14th Annual Table for Ten and is an extraordinary culinary adventure, which showcases 35 of Southern California’s beloved chefs. The black tie evening begins with a festive cocktail reception and a top-drawer silent & live auction, showcasing: chef dinners, rare wines, local dining experiences, luxury goods and awesome travel to coveted locales. It is always so exciting to bid on the various items—-and this is all for such a great local cause.

As the chimes gently ring, everyone is then escorted into the dining portion of the evening.  Guests literally gasp as the Ballroom doors open to reveal the breathtaking drama and elegance awaiting them inside. It is truly overwhelming to see the room.  Eyes dart from table to table. It is magical. Each table is decorated with a different theme. Between the candles, soft lighting, lavish floral displays and china, these tablescapes are quite impressive. As guests are seated, a glance at the menu before them creates a great deal of anticipation.  Each chef and their creative teams welcome the guests and are so proud to create an intimate six-course dining experience. They prepare a masterful dinner tableside for 10 very special guests. Exquisite wines are paired with the cuisine, and each table is abuzz with interesting conversation throughout the evening. Silent auction and live auction items are awarded and the evening is a wonderful experience. www.TableForTen.org
