Share Our Selves’ 28th Annual Crazy Taco Night gears up with a new twist

Mark your calendar for Share Our Selves’ 28th Annual Crazy Taco Night taking place on Saturday, April 24. SOS is gathering some of Orange County’s favorite chefs alongside more than 300 foodies and philanthropists to put a new twist on a signature event consisting of unique tacos, inventive margaritas and community engagement.

This year, they are going drive-thru style at the OC Fair & Event Center from 3-6 p.m., so that guests can enjoy the event while staying socially distanced in their cars. Proceeds benefit SOS Social Services, providing food, emergency financial relief, homeless support services and more to vulnerable neighbors.
