“The Celebrity Chef Ball is the heart of Meals on Wheels Chicago. We as chefs know the importance of a meal thoughtfully prepared.  You are not only nourishing somebody’s body, you are nourishing their soul. Chefs know the guests that attend are genuine foodies, so there is no phoning on the chef’s part. We understand by giving ourselves that evening and ensuring ours guests have an incredible experience and have dined well, then they will be more inclined to donate to support our Chicago seniors and people with disabilities.” – Chef Cory Morris (Boleo)

The MOWC’s Chef Council has been instramental with ensuring that we have a top-notch list of chefs for our 30th Anniversary Celebrity Chef Ball on November 9th.  Click below to check out our current list of celebrity chefs and/or purchase tickets.
