Available for Purchase

To celebrate the Meals on Wheels Chicago program, dozens of top chefs and mixologists will come together to create a special evening of fine dining.


The Ball begins with a cocktail reception followed by a truly unique and extravagant experience where every table is a chef's table! A team of chefs will prepare a six-course meal right in front of your table, personally presenting their creations. Opportunities to win stellar experiences while supporting our cause are available during the live auction and paddle raise. Proceeds benefit Chicago's homebound seniors and people with disabilities struggling with food insecurity.


This event is black tie optional. As this is a unique culinary experience, we cannot accommodate special requests or dietary restrictions. 

Meet The Chefs!

The Chefs are the real star of the show! Chefs and restaurants make this event possible, donating their time, talent, and resources to create a spectacular evening for Meals on Wheels Chicago supporters. We are still adding to this year's lineup, so check back for the full list!
