"This fundraising event offers 400 guests the opportunity to sample fare from some of the area's best restaurants, mingle with local celebrity chefs, taste incredible wines and spirits, and bid on an impressive array of auction items.  This evening, which helps raise important dollars for the March of Dimes in Chattanooga, pays tribute to the culinary excellence of local chefs and caterers in the River Valley and is geared toward people who enjoy fine dining, fine wine, auctions and entertainment," organizers said.   "We’ll also have former Tennessee Volunteer of the Year Dan Cobb present to speak with you."
