THE SCENE: The 7th Annual Symphony of Chefs benefitting KidLinks was held at the newly renovated and renamed Eddie Bernice Johnson Union Station. Good Morning Texas co-host Jane McGarry served as emcee for the evening and got in on the action when she joined Tim Willett on stage for the culinary experiences live auction. The unforgettable night began with an hors d’oeuvres reception featuring rising star chefs: Jan Loov of Texas Spice, Benjamin Maulsby of Happiest Hour, and Juan Orocio of 4R Ranch Vineyards & Winery. Guests then entered the Grand Hall for a seated 4-course dinner prepared tableside by featured chefs, with each course paired with wine selected by winemaker Willem Johnson of 4R Ranch Vineyards and Winery, as well as a specialty cocktail using luxury cognac Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège crafted by Joshua Hendrix, Hennessy Brand Mixologist.

THE VIBE: Each of the 24 tables had a designated chef who prepared their own unique menu tableside. The evening concluded with a decadent dessert reception by incredible Pastry Chefs Dunia Borga of LaDuni Baking Studio, Tina Miller of Proper Baking Company, and Tida Pichakron + Gianni Santin of Haute Sweets Patisserie. Attendees left with a custom cookbook featuring recipes from each of the participating chefs. Hamilton A Sneed and the team at HAS Events truly took this evening to new heights, making the seventh year of Symphony of Chefs exciting for all in attendance.

THE CAUSE: This culinary-infused evening was led by honorary chairs D’Andra Simmons-Lock and Jeremy Lock, event co-chairs Georgia & Marc Lyons and Bonnie & Nathan Shea, and honorary chair chef Salvatore Gisellu with Urban Family Restaurants. The event was made possible in part by presenting sponsors Mason & Allen Custard, Emily & Bruce Robson and Kaari & James Wicklund. Funds raised from the evening will support KidLinks’ efforts to provide healing experiences for the special needs of children through the therapeutic power of musica unique mission that seeks to enrich the lives of children everywhere through songs of health, healing and happiness.
