Hundreds of Chicago foodies hit the Ritz-Carlton for the annual Chefs in the City culinary fundraiser. More than 30 chefs such as Stephanie Izard and Graham Elliott presented tastings from their restaurants. Mark Shale creative director Maria Pinto also presented a fashion show during the gala. All proceeds benefited Vital Bridges, an organization that provides services to low-income men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS in metropolitan Chicago. PHOTO DISCLAIMER
