ABC-7's Len Jennings and Stacey Deffenbaugh
The action was hot, celebrities sparkled, and the food was tasty at the March of Dimes Signature Chef's Auction, on Nov. 19th at the Sanibel Harbour Resort. Jeff Andrews and Stacey Deffenbaugh were emcees, with Auctioneer Mike Joyce assisted by Jon Finstrom and Chuck Moritz. Chefs included Gasparilla Grill's Randy Post, Dwyers Bill Wavrin and Richard Verissimo, Sandy Butler's Phillipe Arlandis, Toro's Mike Walnick and Jerome Sanchez, Fowler Street Grill's Dan Peranich, Sanibel Harbour's Paul Tison, Yum Yum's Doris Rosado, and Biddle's Brenda Biddle and Bruno Ferreyra. There was high energy from start to finish, from sampling the Chef's creations to Mike Joyce's building up bidding fever.
