The Hope Institute’s Celebrity Chef dinner is a cornerstone event here in Springfield that serves as a great opportunity for attendees to experience first-class dining, while supporting Hope’s many programs. This year we were honored to have an excellent cast of chefs who graciously donated their time and talents to provide a fabulous dinner for our guests. Bravo’s “Top Chef” Stephanie Izard was joined by Chef Chris Pandel from Chicago’s famed Balena restaurant and Pastry Chef Amanda Rafalski. The trio lived up to their reputation by serving a superb menu.

The night was also a great success in terms of gifts to The Hope Institute. Through our “Fund the Need” program we were able to secure urgently needed iPads and eBeams for classroom use which are proven tools of success here at Hope. Additionally, the proceeds from our live auction and Golden Opportunity will go to improve and expand our programs and services for all those in need.

Founded in 1957, The Hope Institute for Children and Families is a nonprofit center providing educational, residential, and health services to children ages 5-21 with multiple developmental disabilities, who otherwise would not receive the care they desperately need. Celebrity Chef is a vital program that enables
us to carry out our mission.


We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who attended or had a hand in making this night such a great success!

Kevin Boehm of the Boka Group, a Hope Trustee and Springfield native, for his continued support of Hope and our children.

Our Celebrity Chefs: Stephanie Izard, Chris Pandel, and Amanda Rafalski.
