The 28th annual Chefs’ Gourmet Dinner – Springtime in Paris, was a signature culinary event in support of local youth in need of mentorship.  Hosted by Best Friends, the event featured Waterloo Region’s finest chefs from 20 renowned restaurants who created an unforgettable dining experience with a Champagne Reception, Hors d’oeuvres, and a five-course Dinner.  The evening also included Live and Silent Auctions, raffles, music and more.
