Delight your tastebuds for a good cause at the Meals On Wheels Celebrity Chef Ball.

The Celebrity Chef Ball brings together over 80 chefs and mixologists to raise money for Meals on Wheels, a non-profit that delivers food and company to homebound Chicagoans. This signature fundraiser takes place Fri, Nov 8 and brings together philanthropy and incredible food for an important cause.

Since 1987, Meals on Wheels has delivered food to seniors and those with disabilities. Many of the people the nonprofit serves face challenges that make food security difficult, such as mobility issues and lack of access to transportation. Meals on Wheels makes sure food is accessible regardless of age or ability. Their programs rely on the philanthropy of the community and fundraising events such as the Celebrity Chef Ball.
