Kings Bowl Lincoln Park will once again become a strike zone for Chicago foodies and sports fans on Sunday, April 30 when former Chicago Bear, Rashied Davis, hosts “Chef Bowl 2017.”

Emceed by Ji Suk Yi of ABC 7’s “Windy City Live” and chaired by Chef Tony Priolo of Piccolo Sogno and Nonnina, the event will bring Chicago’s hottest chefs together for a day of bowling, delicious food and festivities to support Saturday Place.

In addition to Priolo, other participating chefs include Kevin Cuddihee (TWO), Dick Flanigan (Il Congilio), Kevin Hickey (Duck Inn), Brian Jupiter (Frontier), Cory Morris (Ronero), Todd Stein (Formento’s), Giuseppe Tentori (GT Prime) and Tom Valente (Lucille), among others.

During the event, all chefs will compete in a “Turkey Bowl” competition, aiming to bowl three consecutive strikes in unique and challenging ways. The chef with the highest score will receive a commemorative Chef Bowl trophy.

Saturday Place is an academic enrichment program for third and fourth-grade Chicago Public School students performing at least one year below grade level and living in under-resourced communities. The program meets weekly on Saturdays, offering students an additional day of academic instruction and support. For the past four years, Saturday Place students demonstrated growth in math (99th percentile) and reading (60th percentile) during their two years in the program.

“Saturday Place is truly an inspiring organization,” said Priolo. “I’m proud to bring some of the city’s most acclaimed chefs together to support its programs and positively impact our city’s youth.”

“Chef Bowl 2017” lane sponsorships are available starting at $2,500. General admission tickets are also available for $65 and include entry to the event and samplings of Kings’ renowned made-from-scratch menu. All guests will receive a special Saturday Place bowling pin, which can be used for autographs from their favorite Chicago chefs and sports celebrities during the event.
