Meet our Celebrity Chef

Father Leo, as he is known, is an award-winning chef and host of “Savoring Our Faith” on EWTN. Fans of his cooking talents might remember his win in 2009 on Food Network's “Throwdown! With Bobby Flay” with his Funky Fusion Fajitas with Holy Guacamole and Screamin' Sour Cream.


With wit, humor, and style, Father Leo will entertain us while demonstrating preparation of our dinner and leading us through an interactive dessert creation. His firm conviction that relationship bonds are strengthened over a shared meal will be the keynote of our evening together.

Meet our Musical Talent

Singer and multi-instrumentalist Mario Bonds will inspire us with his music and riveting personal story, which includes going totally blind at age 10, abuse, abandonment, poverty, homelessness and many other curve balls.


Now a father after adopting four sons, Mario used his childhood traumas and vision impairment as superpowers. He found his strength in the arts and has gone on to mega franchises like American Idol and The Glee Project. 

Other Event Details

Our beautiful venue will be decked in celebration of springtime and new beginnings. Throughout the evening you are invited to have a complimentary professional family photo taken, or sit for a caricature drawing. You will also have an opportunity to take part in a "Wine Pull" and place bids on any of our spectacular silent auction items.  For refreshment, enjoy the cash bar or delicious, alcohol-free options of your choice.  


During dinner, the celebrity chef will delight with his cooking demonstration as well as lead us through an interactive, build-at-the-table dessert creation. After the meal,  hear from San Mar about how this special night is impacting the community by helping children and families hold onto dreams for a brighter future.  Our special musical guest will also inspire us with his amazing story and talent.
