At a Happy Hour event on March 14 during the International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago, more than 350 industry professionals gathered for food, drinks and music to benefit the Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP). C-CAP raised $25,000 at the invitation-only event, which was sponsored by Harold Import Co. and featured an appearance by celebrity chef Guy Fieri. Guests sampled several of Fieri's dishes prepared especially for the event by more than 75 Chicago C-CAP high school students.
