San Diego Culinary Masters to Battle it Out During Seany’s Chef’s Fest

| September 3, 2019 | 0 Comments

The Seany Foundation’s second annual Seany’s Chef’s Fest will bring foodies from all over San Diego to taste and vote on dishes that some of the region’s top chefs create specifically for the event. Proceeds from the event will benefit the organization’s programs for children and families affected by cancer. The event takes place at noon, Sunday, September 8 at Green Acres Campus Pointe, located at 10300 Campus Point Drive in San Diego.

Upward of 21 food and drink related businesses will be participating in the food and drink sampling, and other festivities, which will also include live music and face painting for the whole family, and raffle prizes.

Hosted during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Chef’s Fest raises funds for The Seany Foundation’s programs for children affected by cancer. These programs are free to relieve the financial burden of cancer and give families the opportunity to connect with those faced with a similar situation.

“At our first Chef’s Fest last year, it was obvious how much everyone loved it – from the community who attended to the chefs who competed,” says Tiana LaCerva, The Seany Foundation’s director of special events. “This year, the competition is heating up with more chefs involved and titles to defend. Our camp families love seeing the outpouring of support for the camps that encourage their spirits.”

“The rumors are true – I did win last year’s Chef’s Fest and the fourth best taco in the U.S. from Travel and Leisure,” says Hector Casanova of Casanova Fish Tacos. “This year, I plan on defending my title by winning over the event’s youngest judges – the kiddos.”

The Seany Foundation raises funds to continue Seany’s Camp Reach for the Sky – an annual camping adventure bringing happiness to kids affected by cancer. Seany’s camps provide a safe space for kids dealing with cancer. Kids can have fun, feel “normal” and discover themselves with the company and support of peers experiencing similar struggles, while nurturing the mind, body, and spirit through time outdoors in nature. To learn more about the Seany Foundation and to purchase tickets, visit
