The sixth annual World Festival gala took place on Monday night at Soldier Field in Chicago, bringing together more than 700 foodies who sampled tastings from prominent local and national Chef’s.
World Festival, hosted by Common Threads, celebrates food and its influence on the diverse cultures that surround us. In addition to sampling the global food stations of Chicago’s most prominent restaurants, guests perused a silent auction, enjoyed a special performance by K’NAAN and struck a pose at the KIND photo booth. Even Common Threads founder and culinary guru, Chef Art Smith, made sure to pay the booth a visit, flashing his pearly whites for the KIND camera.
KIND was honored to be among the who’s who of Chicago’s culinary scene, as well as to play a role in helping Common Threads to raise $350K to support their organization aimed at providing children of low-income families with after-school, nutrition-based cooking courses.
