The Green City Market Junior Board’s mission is to engage young professionals in market activities, but also assist with fundraising; with your help, our Meet the Market events this summer raised a total of $4,981 for GCM’s LINK card program, with the final MTM in September at The Signature Room racking in a whopping $894!
Now it’s time to show your support once more this season – and have some fantastic fun – by coming out Sunday, Oct. 28 to the GCM Junior Board’s Halloween Harvest Ball! Proceeds from the 2nd annual fall fundraiser will again go to the LINK card program as well as to other initiatives encouraging local, seasonal eating.
Throw on your spookiest costume – this ghoulish event will feature many of Chicago’s top chefs, pastry chefs and mixologists offering seasonal bites and drinks utilizing products from Green City Market farms.
Bid on a dinners at Frontera Grill, Yusho and other top restaurants, brunch at North Pond and brewing at Goose Island, cooking classes, demos, and more featured in the silent auction. Proceeds benefit GCM initiatives.
Guest DJs, Jeff Maimon (GCM Junior board member) and Mark Psilos (GCM Associate Director) will spin spooky tunes with plenty of opportunities for dancing. We will also be awarding a prize for best costume!
