Helping Little Hands Grow at the Chicago Maternity Center – October 15, 2002
CHICAGO, Illinois – Big City Chefs shared the spotlight with Blue Man Group and the Blues Brothers at the “Chicago Blue”-themed Second Annual Benefit for the Legacy Committee of The Chicago Maternity Center. The event, held at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum on September 20, 2002, attracted a vibrant crowd of patrons – mostly dressed in blue – enjoying cocktails, dancing, auctions, and top-notch entertainment to raise funds for the Center’s Reproductive and Endocrinology program.
David Fischbein, Big City Chefs’ President, noted, “With many of our loyal personal chef clients experiencing pregnancy and motherhood for the first time, we are especially mindful of the health of mother and child. Through the combined donations of our company and our generous (Chicago-area) personal chef Kristen Lorenz, we were delighted to contribute our personal chef services to raise money for such an important medical cause that embodies our company’s philanthropic philosophy.”
Since its founding in 1895, The Chicago Maternity Center has established a legacy of providing the best available healthcare for women and infants. Its efforts and exceptional philanthropic support continue on behalf of programs at Northwestern Memorial’s Prentice Women’s Hospital and Maternity Center. In 2000, the CMC Legacy Committee was established to help support and carry on the traditions of the Chicago Maternity Center and help fund its Reproductive and Endocrinology program. The Committee’s Fundraiser is held annually in the Chicago area.
