On Friday, April 28, 2017, Chicago’s legal and culinary communities will come together for the fourth 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.

Through the generosity of individual supporters and sponsoring organizations, the 3rd 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, Giovanna Cirilo and Velton Saldanha, were each awarded a $1,000 scholarship provided by the CBF and Linder Legal Staffing Inc.
