Need something to wash it all down with? They’ve got you covered.

Kevin Rebhan of Pops for Champagne has curated an impressive VIP lounge with an array of premium Moët Hennessy Champagnes to sip and swirl.

Besides serving up some finger-licking good food and bubbles, the event raises money for the Kendall College Trust with all proceeds benefiting Kendall College student scholarship funds and the Kendall College Trust Culinary Camp for children in undeserved communities in Chicago.

Tickets start at just $85 with VIP tickets available for $195.
