The Common Threads Associate Board hosts this annual event which targets a fresh, young group of Chicago professionals who support Common Threads' mission. Chefs create and serve their favorite cookout themed dish either in a glass, on a bun, in a shell, or on a stick. Guests will then vote for their favorite in each category and the top chef wins a prize! This is a fun and exciting event perfect for foodies who want to taste a little of everything.

Sponsorship opportunities are avaliable. For more information please contact Kallie Trimble at
