On Wednesday, April 4, 2018, Chicago’s legal and culinary communities will come together for the fifth annual Passport to Chicago in support of the CBF. Guests will enjoy dishes representing different Chicago neighborhoods, conceived and prepared by members of the Kendall College Competition Club. The event will also feature an appealing selection of local beers, regional wines and hometown spirits. Guests will vote for their favorite dish and crown the evening’s top chef.

$100 Individual Tickets

Through the generosity of individual supporters and sponsoring organizations, the 4th annual Passport to Chicago provided support for the CBF’s continuing efforts to improve access to justice for people in need and make the legal system more fair and efficient for everyone. Both guests and a Culinary Professional Panel voted for their favorite dishes, and the evening’s top chefs, Prerana Sharma and Dain Kim, were each awarded a $1,000 scholarship provided by the CBF and Linder Legal Staffing Inc.

For more information on the 2017 event, you can read the event blog post or event program, including chefs’ menus, or see photos from the event.
