On May 16, the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center is hosting one of our favorite events of the year, the annual Spring Flours gluten-free benefit. It’s an evening featuring more than 25 gluten-free tasting stations hosted by some of Chicago’s best chefs and bakers, a live auction and a restaurant gift card sale. Whether you or someone you love is gluten-free, it’ll be one of your best meals of the year, and all to raise money to support ongoing research and treatment for patients with celiac.

“We are delighted to bring together the best gluten-free chefs and bakers to provide a care free evening of food, freedom and fundraising,” said Carol Shilson, Executive Director of the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center. “Those living with celiac disease can’t often relax when dining out. Spring Flours makes it deliciously possible to do so. The goal of the evening is to raise funds for our important work, most notably finding a cure, but it is also gratifying to see genuine enjoyment on the faces of attendees.”

The event starts at 6 pm at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers, 301 E. North Water St., Chicago. Tickets are on sale now for $175 each; a reserved table of 10 is $2,000.
