Chef Help Wanted


Hello Chefs!

March of Dimes 18th Annual Signature Chefs Auction

Date: Thursday, October 29th
Time: 6:30 pm
Place: Loews Royal Pacific Resort

They are in need of a dozen or more great chefs for this annual event. The event is less than two weeks away, but they need more chefs! For the event, you would provide and prepare 200 tastings of your signature dish. They tell us that chefs typically decorate their stations to promote their restaurants and occasionally chefs donate auction items for the additional exposure (although an auction donation is not a necessity). Event attendees taste all of the dishes and ‘vote’ for their favorite – the winner will be named the 2015 Signature Chef. If you are interested, they will send you a packet that contains all the details including information on the media benefits that they have secured for the event. All the proceeds from the event go to furthering the March of Dimes mission. For more information, please contact Victoria at
