Vital Bridges Brings Back Chefs and the City

It's no secret that chefs help raise money, and Vital Bridges knows this well as they return for their eighth annual Chefs and the City on Friday, July 27 at The Ritz-Carlton Chicago (160 East Pearson Street) from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

The evening starts off with a VIP reception followed by a main tasting prepared by twenty-six of Chicago's most sought-after chefs including Ryan Pitts, Heather Terhune, Chris Pandel and Ryan Poli. Tickets are $400 for the VIP reception and main tasting, and if $400 is too much for your wallet, you can get into the main tasting for $250. If that's still too much, you have another opportunity to join the party and help raise funds for $50 for the end of the night dance party. To purchase tickets or for more information, please visit the event page.

PS. Check out this pretty rad video (ok, maybe I just like to see Ryan Pitts doing the worm):

Proceeds from the event support Vital Bridges Center on Chronic Care, which helps people impacted by HIV/AIDS throughout Chicago-land to improve their health and build self-sufficiency by providing food, nutrition counseling, housing, care coordination and prevention services.
