It’s that time of year where area restaurants are getting ready for the 25th Annual Chefs for Jimmy Red Carpet Celebration. The event will take place on January 23, 2015 at 6:30 pm at Chez Josef in Agawam. The Chefs for Jimmy event is described as the premier food tasting event in the region, and is affiliated with the Jimmy Fund Council of Western Massachusetts. The Council raises funds for cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and this event typically raises approximately $100,000 each year.
Aldo Fazio, of Fazio’s Ristorante & Pizzeria has been participating in the Chefs for Jimmy event for about 18 years. When asked how long it takes to prepare the food for an event this size, Aldo explained that “it takes several hours.” The menu of delights Aldo provides varies from year to year, but in the past he has prepared dishes such as roasted tenderloin and a bed spring mix with gorgonzola, peppers, and a house made dressing.
Aldo’s aunt passed away from cancer many years ago, and participating in the Chefs for Jimmy event is a way for him to honor her memory.
Chefs for Jimmy has been voted the “Best Charity Event” by The Valley Advocate’s “Best of Reader’s Poll” for several years in a row.
