The Charlie Trotter Fund

The legacy of the Godfather of the Windy City culinary landscape animates the Charlie Trotter Fund, an organization of chefs, friends, and food fans dedicated to honoring the late, innovative chef. Their fundraising dinners bring together personalities and dishes from numerous Chicago hot spots, including Piccolo Songo and Cochon Volant Brasserie, into multi-course evenings filled with wine from 25 different labels, beer from Revolution Brewing, cider from Virtue Cider, and remembrance. The group's ultimate goal? To raise enough money for a life-sized statue, designed by Chicago sculptor Virginio Ferrari, to commemorate Trotter's adventurous gourmet legacy for generations of foodies to come. The tribute will find a permanent home along Michigan Avenue.

Customer Reviews

Great food, wine, band and venue, all for a great cause. It would be even better if the bust of Charlie could turn into a statue
