The 2015 March of Dimes Signature Chefs, a benefit for babies, is an event to raise funds for the campaign to end prematurity. The event is a culinary showcase, featuring Austin’s top culinary masters. This rare opportunity is made possible by participating chefs graciously donating their time and talent to create a food experience beyond any available at a single location in Austin. Each tasting is thoughtfully created to tantalize the palette of even the savviest “foodie” and highlight the chef’s unique and exceptional talents. Amidst a lively party atmosphere and exciting entertainment, guests will enjoy exquisite cuisine, spirited cocktails and enticing raffle and auction packages.
