8th Annual Chefs on the Grill

($85 )

Welcome summer with hot grills, cool drinks, live music, and prizes at the ultimate Chicago grilling competition benefitting Common Threads and the Illinois Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (IRAEF)!

Enjoy an alfresco evening while interacting with the chefs, tasting their signature grill recipes, and voting for the 2015 Chefs on the Grill Champion!  

Proceeds from this year's event benefit Common Threads and the IRAEF ProStart scholarship program.

Common Threads has been teaching children living in underserved communities how to cook wholesome, healthy meals in professional led, curriculum-based after-school programs for 10 years.

By bringing together the industry and the classroom, ProStart gives students a curriculum-focused platform to discover new interests and talents through opening doors for fulfilling lives and careers. 

Both organizations set a high standard of excellence for students and the industry, and directly benefit from partnerships with local restaurants like the Plaza at Millennium Park.
