CHICAGO — Doug Sohn joked in an email lately that he is still doing something besides going to Cubs games.
The founder of the former Hot Doug's is co-chairing Thursday's "A Taste For Change In Chicago" event with Josh Kulp and Christine Cikowski, the chefs/owners of Honey Butter Fried Chicken. Tickets are $150 for the event, to be held at 1840 W. Hubbard St., which will feature more than two dozen Chicago chefs, cooks and brewers serving cocktails and dishes.
The fifth annual event benefits the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law's work to secure justice for people living in poverty.
"Our city and our country face big challenges, but I remain hopeful that together we can make important policy changes to help people from all walks of life," Sohn said. "I am honored to bring Chicago's culinary community together to support this important organization."
Kulp and Cikowski said the event ties into their belief "in fairness and justice."
"It's how we live and breathe and how we run our business," they said in a joint statement. "We were honored to serve on the City of Chicago's Working Families Task Force and partner with the Shriver Center to ensure every working Chicagoan has access to paid sick time."
