More than 300 industry guests gathered together for a night of fine food and friendships as the Concrete Chefs put on their ninth dinner during the PCI Chicago Committee Days. On Thursday, May 1, 2015, Jim Voss of JVI opens the doors of his Lincolnwood, Illinois facility to the crowd.
The chefs began preparing in the gourmet kitchen days in advance - ensuring that there would be plenty of food and drink. This year, the chefs included Denise Voss, Jim Voss of JVI, Robert Vitalli of Blakeslee Prestress, Dick Taylor of Strand-Tech Martin, Ted Coons of Spillman, Thomas D’Arcy of The Consulting Engineers Group, and Chuck Magnesio of JVI.
The dinner, originally conceived as a fun gathering has taken on a new life in recent years as a fund raiser for the PCI Foundation. This year, more than $8000 was raised to support programs at schools of architecture, engineering and construction management throughout the US.
