Much Supports Culinary Care at Cook-Off Award & Casino Royale Gala

Much proudly sponsored Culinary Care’s annual Cook-Off Award & Casino Royale Gala on November 10 at the Chicago Cultural Center. Members of our team, along with clients and friends of the firm, attended the event, which featured charitable casino games, dueling pianos, and 25 Chicago chefs preparing their finest dishes. The gala was a sold-out success, and all proceeds benefitted Culinary Care’s mission to support cancer patients and their families.

At the beginning of the night, the Culinary Care team led an award ceremony for the corporate cook-off, an event inspired by the television show Chopped, where corporations compete to see who can make the best version of a cancer-friendly dish.

In September, Much partnered with Mordecai, a restaurant in Wrigleyville, Illinois, to participate in the corporate cook-off. Our team cooked an orecchiette pasta dish, and the success of our meal coupled with our firm’s community service efforts earned Much the 2022 Impact Cup. The prize, commissioned by Impact Networking and Tiffany & Co., will remain with Much for a year.

Culinary Care is a nonprofit founded in 2013 with the mission of providing meals and support to cancer patients and their families. Each year, the organization hosts its gala to raise money while also celebrating service efforts from corporations throughout the Chicagoland area. Learn more by visiting
