The Great Chicago Steak Out Is Happening Right Now To Benefit The Greater Chicago Food Depository
This most certainly caught my eye.
The possibility that I might have the chance to chow down for FREE for a year at the city's top steakhouses. And I could keep this secret to myself, but I'm going to share it with you.
The Chicago Private Dining Steakhouse Group and the Futures Industry Association are behind an online campaign to raise a significant amount of money for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Apparently the nonprofit organization is serving 59 percent more people than three years ago, so they need all the help they can get.
Through Nov. 1, every $25 donated to the Great Chicago Steak Out campaign will give you the opportunity to enter the contest to win dinner for a year at 12 top local steakhouses (the gift certificate is worth approximately $1,400).
Also happening on Nov. 1 is the annual Futures Industry Association's Futures Cares Great Chicago Steak Out, a private event that raised $390,000 for the Greater Chicago Food Depository in 2011. The Chicago Private Dining Steakhouse Group provides all the food for the festivities.
And just so you know, the members of The Chicago Private Dining Steakhouse Group are Benny's Chop House, Carmichael's, David Burke's Primehouse, Ditka's, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Winebar, Gibson's Bar & Steakhouse, Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse, III Forks, Lawry's The Prime Rib, Mastro's, Michael Jordan's Steak House, Morton's The Steakhouse, Phil Stefani's 437 Rush, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Shula's, Smith & Wollensky, Stetson's Chop House, Sullivan's Steakhouse, The Capital Grille, The Chicago Firehouse, The Grill on the Alley, The Grillroom Chophouse & Winebar, The Palm Restaurant and Wildfire.
