2011_4_27GrowingHome.jpg Growing Home, a Chicago-based non-profit that provides job training through urban agriculture, is throwing a fabulous gala on Thursday - and you might be invited. The event, at the Chicago Cultural Center, will feature food by Paul Virant (of Vie and soon-to-be Perennial Virant) and desserts by Sweet Miss Givings. Bill Kurtis will be giving the keynote address, and a silent auction will be offering up a "Chef for a Day Package at Charlie Trotters," among other great prizes. Tickets are normally $125 each, but we have two to give away to a loyal reader. Enter to win after the jump.

Enter your information below if you're interested. The cocktail reception starts at 5:30 and dinner is at 6:30, so be sure you can go. We'll be taking entries all day today (Wednesday) and we'll contact the winner. Tickets will be picked up at the event, so no pesky mailings or meetings are required.
