Nine celebrity chefs, including the most recent winner of a James Beard Best Chef Northwest medal, took guests of the 18th annual Premier Chefs Dinner on a culinary adventure to the tune of more than $334,000 raised for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center's general fund. Of the total, $262,000 was donated through the "Help the Hutch" portion of the live auction, during which guests pledge donations at various dollar levels.
