Before the grand occasion of KidLinks' highly anticipated 14th Annual Symphony of Chefs fundraiser, event chairs Beanie & Martin Newman, graciously hosted sponsors and patrons on Monday, February 5th, within the elegant ambiance of Nick & Sam’s Steakhouse. Amidst an array of renowned chefs from our local culinary scene, sponsors eagerly vied for their preferred culinary maestros in the annual chef’s draft. The VIP Patron and Chef Selection soirée witnessed table hosts strategically "drafting" their desired chefs, with priority determined by their early commitment and sponsorship level to the event. It was an evening of culinary prowess and community spirit, setting the stage for what will be an unforgettable symphony of flavors in support of KidLinks' noble cause.

Participating chefs in attendance included Honorary Chef Chairs Justin Box, Private Chef, Consultant and Restaurateur and Luke Rogers, Executive Chef & Owner of Beckley 1115. Joining them were fellow chefs Michael Matis and Brandon Williams of Fearing’s Restaurant and Jennie Kelley and Brandon Moore of Fond. Notable supporters in attendance included Lisa & Stuart Sides, Georgia & Marc Lyons, Bonnie Shea, Salvatore Gisellu and Ann & J.W. Brown.

The 14th Annual Symphony of Chefs event will be held on Monday, February 26th at Armstrong Fieldhouse at SMU. The evening will begin with this year’s featured hors d’oeuvre chef, Chef de Cuisine Dino Gonzalez of The Rayleigh Underground preparing delicious canapés during the cocktail reception, followed by a seated dinner where 19 of Dallas’ most notable chefs (list here) will prepare a four-course dinner tableside for guests with wine pairings from some of the world’s best vineyards. Following the coursed meal, Jill Bates, Executive Pastry Chef of Sugar and Sage Bakery and this year’s featured pastry chef, will delight with a masterful dessert course as an end note to the evening. The evening will also include a silent auction of experiences, wine pull and live auction and much more. Funds raised from the event support KidLinks efforts to provide healing, hope and happiness for the special needs of children through music and media. Learn more at
