“Plates are clean!” declared McCormick & Schmick's executive chef and culinary leadership honoree Christian Mayrhofer. “Time to go home!”

Empty plates were a common theme during the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction on Tuesday, although not for want. There was plenty to tempt each of the 400 guests out of good behavior, thanks to area chefs and eateries dishing out their signature offerings.

Chaired by Brian Boeglin, the event raised more than $165K and also honored Dr.Robert Guthrie and April and Gary Fisher. Amongst the crowd were Jake andToni Zoller, Mary Beth Jenkins, Elliot Pope and John McIntyre.

“We always want to focus that this is all done by the volunteers, with staff support. That's the power of our mission,” said MOD's state rep, James Dennis.
