About Symphony of Chefs

Symphony of Chefs is one of two signature events benefiting KidLinks featuring some of Dallas’ most notable chefs. Held annually on the last Monday in February, the intimate evening begins with an hors d’oeuvres reception featuring live musical entertainment, followed by a seated four-course dinner prepared table-side and paired with wines from several vineyards. The Symphony of Chefs evening concludes with a spirited live auction of chef-driven culinary experiences and decadent dessert course.

The 2019 Symphony of Chefs took place on February 25, 2019. Stay tuned for info on next year's event!
