The Chefs Dinner series is the primary fundraiser for Bridgehampton’s Hayground School and a tribute to the late Jeff Salaway, a widely respected and beloved restaurateur and one of the school’s co-founders.  Since its inception, this event has raised more than $1 million for Jeff’s Kitchen and the Jeff Salaway Scholarship Fund.
