Chefs in the regional event hailed from Bentonville to Fayetteville and Siloam Springs to Eureka Springs. Serving as the evening's honorary chef was Vince Pianalto, pastry and baking instructor at Brightwater: A Center for the Study of Food. The 10th annual event garnered more than $44,000 for the garden.
