Over 400 guests enjoyed a fun and elegant evening of culinary bliss at the 7th Annual Mid-Cities Supporters of SafeHaven Celebrity Chefs 2013. Held at the Hurst Conference Center the event featured masterful creations from 17 area chefs, raffle tickets for gift packages, and a live auction with exclusive chef packages.
The crowd was entertained by master of ceremony Scott Murray and thanks to the persuasive powers of auctioneer Dan Holmes, the live auction raised over $80,000 to benefit SafeHaven, an organization dedicated to providing support for women and children impacted by domestic violence.
SOS president Deanna Stuart, event chair Katie White and SOS vice president Tara Hutchins-Welsh and their team should be congratulated for this five star event.
