On Sunday, February 24, 2019, for the 15th year in a row Crumble Catering’s Chef Wayne Elias (left) 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 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation Viewing Party, raising over $6.3 million. 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 worldwide to challenge discrimination against people affected by the epidemic, prevent infections, provide treatment and services, and motivate governments to end AIDS.

Chef Wayne and his business partner of 28 years Chris Diamond are co-owners of Crumble Catering and the Los Feliz restaurant Rockwell: Table & Stage, are truly Hollywood’s “go-to” team.

Diamond said, “We love creating a magical experience for the Foundation guests – as it is not only a celebratory night for Hollywood but a vital cause-driven night for raising funds!”

“We are excited to lead the way this year with a menu that will delight the senses and please the palates of this discerning and generous group of patrons,” Elias added. “It truly is one of the most exciting moments for my team and always a night to remember, knowing that so many individuals are benefiting around the globe.”
