On Wednesday, June 20, 2012, the Fifth Annual "Chefs on the Grill" chef competition takes place on the plaza at Park Grill in Millennium Park, just beneath the bean.

The event benefits the Special Olympics Chicago. ABC7's Hungry Hound Steve Dolinsky is the celebrity emcee.

To get in the mood, we had Michael Wallach, Executive Chef from Park Grill restaurant, and Jen Kramer, president of Special Olympics Chicago, came into our ABC7 studio kitchen. Chef Michael showed us how to make "Surf, Turf & Grind Kabobs."

Guests 21+ may attend. They can call 312-521-7275 or visit Park GrillChicago.com for tickets.
