2019 Spring Event - Iron Chef Gala

The Ball-Chatham Educational Foundation hosted the 2nd Annual Iron Chef Gala, presented by Bank of Springfield, and the Orthopedic Center of Illinois, on Friday, May 10 at the Crowne Plaza.


Hundreds joined us for an event that benefitted Ball-Chatham schools, featuring a competition between top chefs in our community.  Attendees enjoyed the culinary delights prepared by each of our Iron Chefs, including those from: Indigo Cuisine, 5flavors Catering, Copper Pot Cooking Studio, Joseph's Fine Cuisine, Nu-Voh at the Saint Nicholas and Crowne Plaza Springfield - Convention Center.  The evening also included silent and live auctions, featuring an amazing collection of packages and experiences.
