On Sunday, February 24, 2019, Elton John hosted his annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Viewing Party for the Oscars – and for the 15th year in a row, Crumble Catering’s Chef Wayne Elias and his business partner Chris Dimond (right) join Sir Elton John and husband David Furnish as they dished over 1,000 five-course meals in a massive undertaking, raising over $6.3 million dollars.
West Hollywood Park, was transformed into a city within a city, with a sprawling array of custom-built pavilions. It took an army of 150 servers and bartenders and 70 kitchen staff to make for a flawless evening, pleasing the palates of Hollywood’s biggest A-listers. From its humble beginnings in 1992, the EJAF has raised more than $406 million world-wide to challenge discrimination against people affected by the epidemic, prevent infections, provide treatment and services, and motivate governments to end AIDS.
