Who we are:
Operation North Pole, Inc. (“ONP”) is a Chicago volunteer-based children’s charity that annually hosts a holiday fantasy trip to the North Pole for families who have a child battling a life threatening/terminal illness. As a volunteer-based organization, ONP relies on donations and fundraising to operate. For the past 5 years, a number of Chicago’s most well-known chefs have hosted a gourmet food tasting event and raised a majority of the money needed for ONP.

ONP had to postpone our flagship 2020 holiday event due to the pandemic and will also have to forgo our 2021 fundraising tasting event as COVID continues to ravage the country. Just like the parents of a child battling a potentially terminal illness, many of our chef-owners, brave each day not knowing if their doors will remain open for another day or two.

What is the event:
On March 21, 2021, we will be hosting a free 12-hour live streaming telethon, called “Let’s Get Cookin”, featuring twenty-four Chicago area chefs who will demonstrate their talents for you to see. It's a supersized cooking show to learn secret recipes and give back at the same time. All the net proceeds will go back to benefit the chefs/restaurants who have been so generous to us.
