'Red or White Ball' Snags One Red-Hot Chef

Andrew Brochu has been having one hell of a time since taking over executive chef duties at Kith & Kin last fall.
Mega star Matt Damon and his filming crew ate damn near everything on the menu at the seafood-focused resto last December. They also gave the chef and his crew a thrill when they hung out a little.
In January, Brochu and his team won the prestigious Jean Banchet award for Best Neighborhood Restaurant.
And in April, he's set to be one of three high-profile chefs serving the VIPs during an exclusive cocktail reception at the Steppenwolf Auxiliary Council's annual Red or White Ball at Salvage One (1840 W. Hubbard St.).
This is the first time the event's featured chefs, so there's only a limited number of VIP tickets available. Brochu will whip up signature bites alongside Ivan Yuen (Shanghai Terrace) and Perry Hendrix (Custom House Tavern).
The VIP party starts at 7pm April 8, with the general admission event immediately following at 8pm. That includes appetizer stations, an open bar, silent auction and live music.
Tickets are $250 (VIP) and $130 (general admission), and may be purchased right here.
Proceeds from the Red or White Ball benefit Steppenwolf for Young Adults, the theater's nationally recognized arts education and outreach programs.
