Chefs for Jimmy supports Dana-Farber

AGAWAM — Join forces with 30 of the area’s culinary “superheroes” at Chefs for Jimmy to raise more than $100,000 for adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to help knock out the ultimate villain, cancer.
The 22nd annual Chefs for Jimmy will take place at Agawam’s Chez Josef on Jan. 20, 2012, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. and will feature tastings of delicious dishes, a fantastic opportunity drawing, and a silent auction.
The event honors the memory of Neal Webber, a long-time supporter of the Jimmy Fund. Participating restaurants and caterers will create dishes and décor to highlight the superhero theme.
Since 1990, Chefs for Jimmy has raised more than $1 million for adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber. Tickets to the event are $75 and are available only in advance. Order tickets today by calling 800-52-JIMMY or online at jimmyfund.org/chefs-for-jimmy.
The Jimmy Fund solely supports Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, raising funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research to improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world. It is an official charity of the Boston Red Sox, as well as the official charity of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, and the Variety Children’s Charity of New England. Since 1948, the generosity of millions of people has helped the Jimmy Fund (www.JimmyFund.org) save countless lives and reduce the burden of cancer for patients and families worldwide.
