JOIN US MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2022 for the 12th Annual Symphony of Chefs!

Symphony of Chefs is an evening of culinary composition benefitting KidLinks and the ultimate chef-driven culinary dinner experience!

This event is a unique event experience unlike any other chef-driven charity event in the DFW Metroplex. Approximately 28 of the cities most notable chefs participate in a culinary evening that is out of this world. Guests enjoy a chef prepared & interactive four-course dinner, wine pairings from some of the world’s best vineyards, a silent auction of experiences and much more!

Your evening begins with one Featured Hors d’oeuvre Chef preparing delicious canapés during the cocktail reception, followed by a seated dinner prepared by the Featured Dinner Chefs. Each of the Featured Dinner Chefs prepares a four-course wine-paired menu that is cooked tableside (yes, directly at the dinner table) for 10 guests. Following the coursed meal, two Featured Pastry Chefs create masterful desserts as an end note to the evening.

Included pre-events include a draft style VIP Patron & Chef Selection Party for sponsors just a few weeks before the main event.

Symphony of Chefs is the perfect way to entertain clients and friends while enjoying an unforgettable dining experience. For details on how you can be a part of this event and help to enable smiles on the faces of children, please email info@kidlinks.org.
