Chef Paul talked about the new twist this year. It is not a sit down 5-course meal, more of a dine-around with tapas as 15 local chefs share their time, talents and tasty treats with the audience of 400. Also lots of great auction items to bid on.

“The Fox Trot’s goal this year is to raise $60,000 for the Michael J.
