The Ali Family and the Ben’s Chili Bowl Foundation Board of Directors would like to invite you to be a sponsor at our Ben’s Chili Bowl 60th Anniversary Celebration Gala, “A Tribute to Virginia Ali” on Wednesday, August 22, 2018. This is going to be a special night!
We are truly humbled to have served the community for 60 years and in giving back have welcomed each and every guest as family. Whether it was free meals to the homeless, uniforms for a school band, paying for a child to attend a martial arts class, or having kids come to the Bowl to do homework after school and enjoy a free meal, we did what we could every day! As Ben’s grew to multiple locations, we recognized that we now have a greater responsibility to give back even more as we build upon a legacy that was started in 1958 by the founders of Ben’s Chili Bowl, Ben and Virginia Ali.
Out of the need to impact the community came the formation of the Ben’s Chili Bowl Foundation in 2010. Our mission is to positively impact and provide service to our community by giving back to the neighborhoods where we live and work. We do this by engaging in community projects throughout the year at various locations around the city. The Foundation raises funds from individuals and corporations in order to to give back and fund other community organizations that make a difference every day.
