10th Annual Chefs’ Dinner for PAWS

Philly's finest chefs took over the Linc and created a spectacular, three-course food-and-wine pairing.


The Philadelphia Eagles were playing on the road Monday night (and they won another nail-biter!), so Philadelphia’s finest chefs took over the Linc for the sold-out 10th annual Chefs’ Dinner fundraiser for the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).

Chefs Chris Scarduzio, Jean-Marie Lacroix, Jason Cichonski and Tim Spinner to name a few were on hand to create a spectacular epicurean 3-course tableside food-and-wine pairing for 12 guests each. The night began with a VIP cocktail party before guests sat down for dinner. There was an impressive silent auction where cases of wine were sold, and a very lively live auction where a trip to France which sold for $12,500. After the dinner there was a party with the chefs where guests danced to the tunes of DJ Eddie Tully.
