The Celebrity Chef Ball raises more than $200,000 annually and generates one-fourth of MOWC’s annual revenue to fund programs for Chicago’s homebound senior and disabilities communities. 2014 marks the 26th anniversary of the event which originally debuted as a chef brunch in the food court of the State of Illinois Building atrium. Over the years, the event has attracted the talents of both local and national chefs and the patronage of Chicago’s culinary community.  This year’s event sponsors include Bankers Life, Wirtz Beverage Illinois, William Grant & Sons, and Senior Lifestyle Corporation.
