Each year, March of Dimes honors leading chefs who have donated their time and talents to support of the organization and Arizona’s babies.

Talking Stick Resort, Mr. Freimuth and Mr. Dimas have provided more than $35,000 in support of March of Dimes through sponsorship and funds raised through the auction.

“The continuous support of Chefs Tom Freimuth and Ron Dimas and the culinary team at Talking Stick Resort has played a significant role in the success of the Signature Chefs Auction over the past four years,” said Kate Sepe, senior community director, March of Dimes Arizona. “We are thrilled to be able to show our appreciation by giving them the title of Honorary Chefs.”

As the Honorary Chefs, Freimuth and Dimas are providing a culinary and resort experience as one of this year’s March of Dimes Signature Chef Auction prizes. The prize gives 10 guests a two-night staycation at Talking Stick Resort with dinner at Orange Sky and spa treatments at The Spa at Talking Stick Resort.
