March of Dimes will present world-renowned chef Dominique Crenn with the 2019 MOD ICON Award at the Signature Chefs Auction for her culinary excellence and her relentless push for innovation, sustainability and equality. The auction will take place on Oct. 17 at 6 p.m. at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills.
“I am so happy to support March of Dimes, an organization which drives innovation and works for equality to improve the health of moms and babies for more than 80 years,” Crenn said.
Culinary celebrities Brooke Williamson, Timothy Hollingsworth, Aarti Sequeria and Nancy Silverton, the 2018 March of Dimes ICON Award honoree, are joining forces with over 11 local master chefs to raise funds to benefit the March of Dimes’ mission to lead the fight for the health of all moms and babies. The evening will consist of tasting the most desirable cuisine, prepared and served by culinary masters from top local establishments, followed by a seated dessert program and live auction. Tony Hale, Emmy-award winning actor, will host the evening, and Billy Harris returns as auctioneer.
“We are grateful to work with these talented chefs who are artists, innovators and philanthropists,” said Amy Dittmore, senior development manager for March of Dimes Greater Los Angeles. “This exclusive evening is a great opportunity to experience the carefully curated menu deigned to taste the diverse epicurean talent in Los Angeles while celebrating and supporting this great cause.”
Crenn is the co-owner and chef of the three-Michelin-starred restaurant Atelier Crenn in San Francisco. Crenn was featured on the second season of Netflix’s “Chef’s Table” and is one of the most acclaimed chefs in the U.S.
