We look forward to celebrating the one-of-a-kind tasting experience, the Grand Chefs Experience, once again at The Field Museum. The gala will feature signature hors d’oeuvres from Chicagoland restaurants, fine wines and spirits, along with a culinary inspired silent auction. After the tasting, guests will move downstairs to dine with the world’s largest dinosaur, Maximo! While dining, guests will hear from our honored CF Fighter and support scientific advancements during our bid for a cure and dynamic live auction.

The celebration continues with live music, custom curated cocktails, mouth-watering pastries, and late-night bites during Nightcap—Chicago’s acclaimed after party. Throughout the evening food will be abundant, libations will be flowing, and your support will make us one step closer to a CURE.
