WELCOME DINNER & FUNDRAISER
Friday, October 5, 2018 | 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM
This exclusive cocktail party and dinner hosted by Deckman’s en el Mogor is a rare opportunity to rub elbows with the world-reknown chefs and winemakers participating in Saturday’s event. The meal, which will begin with a Baja raw bar and sparkling wine, will be prepared by Baja superstars Javier Plascencia, Drew Deckman, Sheyla Alvarado, and Ryan Steyn and Top Chef Master Jonathan Waxman. The event will honor Chef Rick Bayless and announce the lifetime achievement award to Baja’s culinary pioneer, Benito Molina & Solange Muris as well as a local winemaker to be announced at the event. One hundred percent of the proceeds from a live auction, hosted by celebrity auctioneer Billy Harris, and a portion of the proceeds from the dinner will benefit the scholarship fund of Corazón de Vida Foundation, which has provided life-changing support and education to orphaned and abandoned children in Baja California for 25 years.
