Inspiration Corporation is excited to announce a one-time-only dinner featuring a family style meal prepared by renowned Chef Bill Kim and his expert team along with beer pairings hand-selected by Chicago Brewery Forbidden Root. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to enjoy this exclusive partnership of one of Chicago’s best chefs and best breweries.
Award-winning Chef Bill Kim got his start in the restaurant industry honing his culinary skills at world-renowned establishments Charlie Trotter’s and Le Lan. After spending years perfecting his skills alongside the best in the industry, Chef Kim would eventually venture out on his own in 2008, bringing his imaginative Asian inspired cuisine to his highly acclaimed Chicago restaurants Urbanbelly, bellyQ, and Belly Shack.
Chicago Brewery Forbidden Root began as a longtime dream to create a true-brewed root beer and quickly grew to encompass the broader idea of reinventing botanic beers. They are currently designing a brewery and tasting room in Chicago’s Near West Side and have received many accolades as one of Chicago’s best new breweries.

One Inspired Evening is Inspiration Corporation's annual fundraiser including art, fantastic food and great people! This year, we raised over $140,000 in support of Inspiration Corporation's mission.
Highlights of the event included a juried art auction by artist and managing director of Firecat Projects Stan Klein, and artist, founder/director of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative Deborah Maris Lader, and Chicago business owner Steven E. Gross. It featured amazing pieces by local and national artists; as well as cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres buffet catered by Inspiration Kitchens, our food service training program and social enterprise, with restaurants in Garfield Park and Uptown.
We share our heartfelt appreciation to this year's co-chairs, Elisabeth Payne and Wendy Raymer. This evening would not be possible without the dedicated One Inspired Evening committee and volunteers who devote countless hours to making it a success.
We are thrilled by the support of our Presenting Sponsor again this year:
