March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction


Chefs 'whip it up' for charity

DRACUT -- The March of Dimes held its annual Signature Chefs Auction on Oct. 8 at Lenzi's. The Signature Chefs Auction is a food sampling extravaganza, paying tribute to the culinary excellence of local chefs, while raising money to support MOD and its efforts to give every baby a healthy start at life.

It was amazing to watch these talented chefs from Ricardo's, The Old Court, Athenian corner, Lenzi's, Two Chef's Catering, 110 Grill, Chowder Factory, UTEC, Catering by Erin McMahon, Cavaliero's, Grazie's at Four Oaks, Owen & Ollie's, Cobblestones, Moonstones and Frederick's Pastries, who displayed beautifully decorated cakes as centerpieces. They whipped up their signature dishes in such confined quarters to feed more than 300 whimsical quests who enjoyed every morsel!

The young and adorable singer/guitarist Johannah Zacharer and pianist/vocalist Leo Sheridan set the mood. Excitement rose as the dynamic duo, emcee Teddy Panos and auctioneer extraordinaire Tom Golden, took the stage.
