Recognizing Chicago’s Finest

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation presents the Jean Banchet Awards for Culinary Excellence, the only Chicago-based awards ceremony that recognizes culinary originality and talent throughout the region. The night will begin with a champagne reception, then, guests will move into the Feinberg Theater as we announce the winners of the Jean Banchet Awards and recognize other culinary milestones from 2017. Following the awards, guests will proceed to the 9th floor, overlooking Michigan Avenue, to celebrate with a Post Awards Party featuring open bars, food and music!

The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.
