Penn Society

Pittsburgh, PA 15222 (basement of Ten Penny)
Wednesday, September 14th
5:00pm – 7:00pm


At our annual gala, Chefs Create Pittsburgh, we pair over a dozen of Pittsburgh’s finest chefs with an individual on the autism spectrum to create a unique dish in their honor that truly tells a story.

The evening begins with cocktails, crudité and conversation as guests arrive at 6pm. At 7pm, the ballroom doors of the exquisite Fairmont Pittsburgh open and reveal the chefs stations and their one of a kind cuisine developed in honor of someone on the autism spectrum. The evening continues with an exclusive Silent Auction, basket raffles, and our “Balloon Pop Pandemonium”, all of which offer incredible prizes and prestigious opportunities. Towards the middle of the evening, our Feature Family shares a documentary that demonstrates their journey with autism, and delivers a moving monologue asking the audience to help fund the mission of Autism Speaks.

Mark your calendars! Chefs Create Pittsburgh will take place Friday, November 18, 2016. Our updated event website will be launched soon.

Want to join our planning committee? It’s loads of fun.
