Over 200 diners came out to sample the cuisine created by local luminaries at the annual Tallmadge Lions Club Celebrity Chefs fundraiser Feb. 11 at The Tangier in Akron. Tim Ream served as the event's emcee. There were 16 Celebrity Chef tables featuring an array of sweet and savory, mouth-watering delectables. The winners were: Savory Starter -- Glazed Hawaiian Kielbasa -- Fred and Dawn Carter, GateHouse Media, far left; Enticing Entree -- Philly Cheesesteak Sliders and Homemade Chips -- Kelsey O'Laughlin and Jen Earl, Carol Martin Salon & Spa, second from left; Fabulous Finish -- Cupcakes -- Jacki Cyr and Emily Wetzel, Howard Hanna Realtors, second from right; and Top Table -- Cheech & Chong's Smoked Mac & Cheese -- Rhonda Moffat, far right. Tallmadge Lions Club members estimate this year's event raised about $11,000 which will go toward purchasing a seeing eye dog for a local resident.
