Celebrity Chef Ball Returns

This annual event is returning after a two-year hiatus on Friday, October 14, 2022 at The Geraghty. You don’t want to miss it!

Dozens of Chicago’s top chefs and mixologists will come together in support of Meals on Wheels Chicago. This event features a unique interactive dining experience, with chefs preparing and serving a six-course meal right in front of guests! Proceeds benefit the home meal delivery program in Chicago, which serves thousands of low-income seniors and people with disabilities who are in need.
