2012_7_26_PTi.jpg Tickets are still available for “Chefs and the City,” the annual culinary extravaganza at the Ritz Carlton Hotel benefiting Vital Bridges Center on Chronic Care. Vital Bridges, part of Heartland Health Outreach, provides food, nutrition counseling, housing, care coordination and prevention services for Chicagoans affected by HIV and AIDS.

Chefs from 26 area restaurants will be serving up noshes amid one of the best views of downtown Chicago. A raffle features prizes like a week-long stay in Puerto Vallarta; tickets to Chicago Gourmet 2012 and an overnight stay at Trump International Hotel & Tower; a trip to Napa Valley wine country; and an in-home dinner prepared by Spiaggia’s Sarah Grueneberg.

The fundraiser, which starts with a VIP reception at 6:30 p.m. July 27 and general admission at 7:30 p.m., closes with a dance party at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $250 for GA ($400 for VIP) and can be purchased online here.
