WHAT:  In honor of Ronayne and Forrest Leahy-Thomas, the Thomas family, Kendall alum, supporters, and Laura Piper from Stock and Ledger will be hosting the fifth memorial fundraiser and benefit to support the Ronayne and Forrest Leahy-Thomas Memorial Scholarship.

The brothers, Ronayne and Forrest, were both beloved members of the Chicago culinary community that were tragically taken from us too soon. Both attended Kendall College and worked at restaurants in the area. They will always be remembered for their lively spirit, incredible work ethic, and contagious laughter. The reception will offer tasting portions from a variety of chefs, drink items, a cash bar, silent auction and a raffle for prizes.

All proceeds from the event will go toward the Ronayne and Forrest Leahy Thomas Memorial Scholarship through the Kendall College Trust.

Ticket price is $50 per person. All ticket sales are final, no refund will be issued.
