21st Annual Zoo To Do “Go Big or Go Home!”

One of the greatest things about our culinary scene in Dallas is the true sense of camaraderie that we see amongst many of the chefs in town, especially when it comes to contributing their time….which they do a lot. Dallas is never lacking in charity events, and for a town that gives back so often, our city’s chefs contribute their time tirelessly, especially when one of their fellow chef friends comes calling. Probably because at one point or another many worked with each other, side by side as they gained their culinary stripes in some of the best kitchens in town.

The Dallas Zoological Society’s annual Zoo To Do event will be held November 3 with Honorary Chef’s Jim Severson of Sevy’s and Dan Landsberg of Dragonfly. This year 26 additional chefs, like Janice Provost, Richard Chamberlain, David Holben, Kevin Garvin, Tim Byers, Gilbert Garza and Kent Rathbun, join their honorary chef friends creating an evening dedicated to raising funds to support the work of the Dallas Zoo.

Dallas Zoological Society Presidant and CEO Michael Meadows notes that “our team of talented chefs and amazing restaurants, paired with the beautiful setting at the Dallas Zoo, make this one of the most unique fund-raising events in Dallas.”  The evening will also include live and silent auctions, casino games and other entertainment.  Information and tickets here.
