Chef Fest is proud to collaborate with Hamilton's Heart Foundation in an exciting partnership that celebrates community, culture, and compassion. A portion of every ticket sold will directly benefit Hamilton's Heart Foundation, supporting their mission to uplift and empower underserved youth. We're not just sharing the joy of music and culinary arts; we're also inviting youth from the program to join us at Chef Fest, offering them a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet their favorite artists and special guests. Together, we're creating more than a festival; we're making a difference. Join us in supporting this noble cause while enjoying the best of San Diego's hip hop and culinary scene.
The Hamilton’s Heart Foundation believes that every child deserves a chance. Every child deserves access to the tools they need to create a bright future. When provided opportunity and acknowledgment, all youth can succeed – no matter the surrounding circumstances. They can excel despite society’s lack of expectation. With the community's support, our mission is to provide day-to-day resources and educational support to children and teens who need a hand-up. Our vision includes scholarship support for the continuing education aspirations of young adults who have aged out of the foster care system. When we are successful, these children lacking in roots and resources will spread their wings – having learned they, too, deserve to have dreams.
In collaboration with community and private agencies, schools, churches, and local advocacy groups, Hamilton’s Heart raises funds and accepts in-kind donations for economically disadvantaged children and children with disabilities. Lynell Hamilton created Hamilton’s Heart Foundation to reflect his belief that with great success comes great responsibility. He hopes that all children have the opportunity to accomplish their dreams. While Hamilton’s Heart continues to engage other professional athletes to garner support for its programs, we make it part of our mission to encourage those athletes to engage in similar activities in their communities.
