The 30th annual Chefs for Jimmy event raises money for cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at the Jimmy Fund in Boston. It is in memory of Neal Webber and Stan Winer — long-time supporters of the Jimmy Fund.
The event features a variety of small plates and desserts from the area’s top chefs and caterers. “There is truly something for everyone! From seafood to noodle bowls, vegan tacos to chicken schnitzel, even homemade ice cream and other treats,” said Jillian T. Davis, officer, event fundraising at The Jimmy Fund who assists the event committee with planning and organizing this event.
“Chefs for Jimmy raises unrestricted funds, meaning the money raised is used toward wherever there is greatest need at any given time,” she explained. “The planning committee is thrilled that this is the 30th annual Chefs for Jimmy. This event has become a beloved annual event in the Western Mass. community and has raised over $1.8 million for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund over the years, making a huge impact.”
“Attending the event is the perfect opportunity to sample food from many different restaurants all under one roof. It’s a great way to support local businesses while raising money for a worthy cause,” Davis said. “There are always new restaurants each year, so you may discover some new favorites.”
The event also features a large silent auction, a drawing for a restaurant gift card basket and a fun, new theme every year. This year’s theme was “One Night of Peace, Love and Food” paying homage to Woodstock and the 1960s.
“The Jimmy Fund is grateful for the community’s ongoing support of this event. We look forward to a groovy evening!” Davis enthused.
