When you have 30+ of the top chefs in Orange County cooking table-side, that’s the type of thing dreams are made of. Only this time, it wasn’t a dream but the work of the good people at Kristin Martin Productions and the host venue, Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point, California; in support of The Teen Project and Vocational Visions.

LAVA was honored to sponsor the cocktail reception and we are sure glad we did as delightful guests flooded the foyer to the tune of a few hundred LAVA Bloody Mary’s served in 2 hours. What a fun event with amazing people!
