Food & Wine: Chefs Make Change

Chefs Make Change

Tomorrow, if people have been generous enough, Mario Batali will have to cut off his ponytail. Mario, along with nine other celebrity chefs, partnered with Food & Wine magazine for Chefs Make Change (CMC), a nationwide campaign to raise one million dollars for the chefs’ philanthropic organizations, including Mario’s Mario Batali Foundation. Mario pledged that if CMC could raise $500,000 by February 7, he would cut off his locks.

The Chefs Make Change campaign is ongoing, so if you haven’t already pledged to one of the chefs, there is plenty of time left:
