We would like to invite you to participate in our largest fundraiser of the year, Season Opener: The Best of the Ball Park, on Friday, April 20, 2012 at the Newberry Library. We are looking for four of Chicago’s hottest chefs to face-off in the Best of the Ball Park cooking contest, creating their own twist on ball park fare. Guests will be able to sample each chef’s creation, and, at the end of the night, one chef will be crowned The Best of the Ball Park. But the real winners will be PFLI and the children it serves. With your help, we will raise money to help support our programs all year long.

How it works: PFLI will provide a $500 budget for each chef to prepare ball park style food for 300 guests. Special guests (TBA) and children from our programs will serve as contest judges. We will provide all materials needed for food preparation.

Why participate? You will be helping children whPlay for Life International (PFLI)o sincerely need fair chance at life. PFLI is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that uses sports to engage and empower at-risk youth. For us, it’s not just about winning, it’s about empowerment: the power to live a positive life, the power to treat others with respect, and the power to make responsible choices. Every day, we’re reminding these kids that they’re not victims of circumstances – they’re contenders.

Participating chefs will receive recognition in all event printed materials, press releases, and the event website, reaching tens of thousands in Chicago and nationwide.
