Asalam alaikum! The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s 18th annual Grand Chefs Gala, presented by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, is taking its guests on a exotic journey. Like a beautiful oasis in the middle of a frosty white winter, this year’s Gala will be lush with color, luxurious decor, excitement and, of course, delectable food and drink – welcome to “Dubai – The Golden City”.
Always mysterious and alluring, Dubai has become synonymous with global jet-setting and splendor. Chicago’s finest chefs will gather amidst the fabulous ballrooms of Fairmont Chicago, Millenium Park, to personally prepare a tapestry of signature dishes for our 750 guests. The Gala will feature live music, dancing, premium silent and live auction items. The Jean Banchet Awards for Culinary Excellence will be awarded to the city’s culinary best in their respective categories. It will be a vibrant, exciting evening to help support CFF’s search for a cure!
