 The Chefs’ Dinner for PAWS is a one-of-a-kind evening of food, fun and excitement where the city’s best chefs create 3-course food and wine pairings tableside for 12 guests each.

Chefs and guests rave about their experience at each year’s event. The intimate setting and personal attention from each chef provides an insider’s view of the nation’s most prestigious kitchens.

All proceeds benefit the construction and Spring 2014 opening of PAWS’ second Adoption Center and Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic, to be located in Northeast Philadelphia.
