The annual Burgers and Burgundy fundraiser was on fire Sunday, with a few hundred supporters attending to –wait for it — eat burgers and drink burgundy. Chef John Tesar hosts this annual moneymaker to benefit the Dallas chapter of DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting AIDS). A few of Tesar’s chef friends teamed up to serve a variety of customized burgers complimented with bottles of burgundy.  Funds raised from the event support DIFFA/Dallas’s mission of serving those who are affected by AIDS and HIV across North Texas. Cool event.
