For the second year running, area chefs will be generously giving of their time and talents at Dim Sum + Give Some, a charitable event that will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 25 at The Italian Community Center, 631 E. Chicago St.
The event, which raises money for the Kennedy's Disease Association, will feature small plates made by 30 area chefs (including a number of Madison restaurants and a slew of James Beard honorees), along with beer and wine.
