Lombard, IL – Join the area’s top chefs in supporting the Agency on Aging Northeastern Illinois’ 28th Annual Celebrity Chefs Brunch benefiting Holiday Meals on Wheels and Aging Services on Sunday, November 3rd from 10:45 AM to 3 PM at Drury Lane in Oakbrook Terrace.

This amazing event, known as a “Party with a Purpose”, emceed by Andy Avalos of NBC 5 Chicago, attracts hundreds of attendees who come to enjoy delectable bites and savory sweets prepared by local chefs, great wine and beer selections, eye-catching silent and live auctions items, and raising money for a worthy cause. This year’s Kentucky Derby theme encourages attendees to enjoy the event in their Derby best! This is one event your taste buds won’t soon forget!

The Meals on Wheels program delivers nutritionally balanced meals to seniors who are homebound or unable to purchase or prepare meals of their own. This program provides meals for a senior citizen for one year for about the same cost as a one day stay in the hospital! Each year, Celebrity Chefs Brunch benefiting Holiday Meals on Wheels and Aging Services raises money to supplement home delivered meal delivery for weekends and holidays and other aging services provided by our Agency partners. Our Meals on Wheels program works hard to fight hunger and malnutrition in the senior population we serve.

The Celebrity Chefs Brunch would not be possible without the wonderful organizations who sponsored this years event including Aetna, BKD CPAs & Advisors, Mom’s Meals, Bradford Allen, NAI Hiffman, Adam & Melissa Schmitz, Denise Izatt & Lois Wisniewski, AAA, Compass, A/Z Health & Elder Law and Illinois Continuity of Care Association.

Tickets to the Celebrity Chefs Brunch are $125 per person ($100 is tax-deductible), which will purchase more than 27 nutritious meals for at-risk, homebound seniors.
