Step Up Shine & Dine 2013


Step Up Women’s Network will once again gather local chefs and notables, including Windy City Live’s Val Warner and Chris Johnson, star of ABC’s new Chicago-set show Betrayal, for Shine & Dine. The August 15 evening will feature seasonal fare from top Chicago restaurants while welcoming 600 local professionals, all to benefit Step Up’s charitable programs that ignite girls to fulfill their potential.

Step Up Managing Director Cassandra Gaddo says, “We’re excited to see Shine & Dine evolve this year with a new venue and 11 notable restaurant partners, just in time to celebrate Step Up’s 15th anniversary. It’s definitely proof of the terrific support we’ve received from our local network that is passionate about mentoring teen girls from Chicago’s under-resourced communities.”
