Kendall College Trust is hosting its 3rd Annual Fried Chicken & Champagne Fest – the most clucking exciting fundraiser of the year. As the Trust’s largest event, Fried Chicken & Champagne Fest raises scholarship funds for students in need attending Kendall College and supports the Kendall College Trust Culinary Camp for high school students from underserved communities.
Hosted by Executive Director Catherine De Orio, the event brings together a dozen of Chicago’s finest chefs who fry up their own take on the classic dish. The lineup of esteemed chefs from restaurants such as Honey Butter Fried Chicken, Monteverde, Parachute, Farmhouse, The Budlong Hot Chicken and more, put their own unique spin on the comfort food favorite, while vying for the Golden Hen award. Guests are in store for an afternoon of indulging, with twelve different types of fried chicken and an array of bubbly.
While supplies last, tickets are available at $85 per Basic Bird ticket, or $195 per Fancy Fowl (VIP) ticket, which includes 30-minute early entry and access to the Pops for Champagne pop-up lounge curated by Kevin Rebhan, featuring an array of premium Moët Hennessy Champagnes to sip and swirl.
