Ben Mahmoud Gallery Event

Sometimes, the most beneficial nutrient one can consume presents itself in the form of giving. Last night I met some fantastic people while volunteering at the Ben Mahmoud Memorial Retrospective and Auction event put on by the Chicago ALS Association, and the Mahmoud family. Ben was an amazing artist and professor who sadly suffered and eventually succumb to ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). The proceeds from this event were donated to the Greater Chicago Chapter's investment in research while fighting ALS.

In addition to the Mahmoud family's donation, guests enjoyed tastings from some of Chicago's top local chefs. Kendall College students assisted Chef James Gottwald, Rockit Bar and Grill, Chef Randal Jacobs, Elate, Chef Chan Le, Le Colonial and Chef Mark Sparacino, Ristorante Prosecco.    
Special thanks to Chef Sparacino for organizing the Chef-Off, and Julie A. Coney, the gallery event coordinator from The Faux Wife.   

Dwight and I enjoyed a delightful evening schmoozing and serving
