The high-end steakhouse on the shore of Lake Michigan in Chicago celebrates a day of giving on the January 1st, when clients of Catholic Charities receive the five-star service and meal.
"Cocktail shrimp. Gibsons famous “garbage salad.” Salmon and tri-tip steak. Double-baked potato. Chipotle roasted corn and green beans. Individual cheesecakes, brownies and cakes for dessert. That will be the menu Jan. 1 when hundreds of Catholic Charities’ clients sit down to an elegant meal provided by Gibsons Steakhouse.
"The event started eight years ago when staff and the owners decided they wanted to give back to the community. It’s not just a staff-hosted event. Friends and family of staff volunteer along with some Gibsons clients. So many people attend the event that it was moved to the Montgomery Club, 500 W. Superior, to accommodate the hundreds of people."--Joyce Duriga, the Catholic New World
