The Bridge Teen Center's Chefs' Auction is one of the longest-running and most highly anticipated events in our community. For those that have attended in the past, we are excited about some positive changes that will make this year better than ever before. Not only is it being hosted at a new venue - Orland Park's Silver Lake Country Club, but we'll also be featuring several new restaurants.

The event brings together top chefs from Chicago's south suburbs, fabulous entertainment, and lively auctions featuring one-of- a-kind experiences and items. Featured food at the event will include hand-picked favorites from the menus of participating restaurants in a "tasting" format. As of 1/26/18, confirmed restaurant participants include:

  • Cooper's Hawk
  • Chuy's
  • Siam Marina
  • Dancing Marlin
  • Burger 21
  • Nothing Bundt Cake
  • Wooden Paddle
  • Connect Roasters
  • Smallcakes
  • Rocco Vino's
  • Houlihan's
  • Doc's Smokehouse
  • Tin Roof
  • City BBQ

If the amazing food isn't enough to draw you in, the night incorporates both silent and live auction items including dining packages, unique experiences, themed gift baskets, and more. From on-site wood-fired pizza parties to wine tasting events, there are packages at every price point. The silent and live auctions always generate spirited bidding and raise significant amounts of support for The Bridge Teen Center's free programs.

This year's featured entertainment includes Chicago-based singer/songwriter Mark Rose, who has sold more than 200,000 albums, and whose original music has been featured on Keeping up with the Kardashians. Attendees bidding in the live auction will even have a chance to bid on a live show at your private party or an original song created by Mark Rose. Live jazz music, photo booth (Thanks For the Memory), special video presentations and interactive culinary stations are also planned.

Tickets for our 2018 Chef's Auction are SOLD OUT! If you would like to be put on the waiting list (to be contacted in case of cancellations), please email with your email address and phone number. For information about contributing to the live or silent auction, contact:
