ABOUT CELEBRITY CHEF BALL

Over 80 top chefs and mixologists come together annually to celebrate food and philanthropy – to NOURISH Chicago’s homebound neighbors. The Ball, hosted this year at Morgan Manufacturing, features two events in one: a VIP event with a seated dining experience for 360 guests followed by a reception-style party known as the Chef’s Tasting Party that typically hosts over 500 guests.

The VIP Ball begins with a cocktail reception at 6pm, followed by an intimate dining experience. VIP Ball guests are seated in “pods,” which are made up of three tables. Each pod has their own team of three top chefs and a mixologist who prepare a six-course meal with cocktail pairings and decadent desserts. Opportunities to win stellar experiences in VIP are available during the live auction. As a VIP, entrance to the Chef’s Tasting Party is also included.

The Chef’s Tasting Party begins at 7:30pm, and guests are invited to sample their way through dozens of chef stations and one-of-a-kind cocktail experiences. While indulging in signature dishes and specialty cocktails, guests bid on dozens of premier items and experiences at the silent auction. Guests also have the opportunity to interact with each chef.

We have an exciting lineup of chefs for this year’s Celebrity Chef Ball. Check out the full list here!
