7th Annual Chefs on the Grill

($100 pre-sale, $125 at the door )

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 helping to crown a winner! 

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.

New to this year’s event, guests will also enjoy a variety of local craft brews provided by Local Option, Ale Syndicate, Virtue Cider, Goose Island, Founders and Moody Tongue.

Live music by Chicago-based band “Murley” will begin at 6 p.m. and continue throughout the evening.  A raffle will be held for such prizes as restaurant gift cards, hotel stays, spa packages, museum passes, event tickets and more. Raffle proceeds will benefit Common Threads and the Illinois Restaurant Association Educational Foundation’s (IRAEF) ProStart program.
