    Parent Suppers

Leave the kids at home and come unwind with the parents of other gifted children.  Share your experiences, learn a new strategy or two, and have a good laugh with others who understand.

With your help we would like to plan suppers all over Chicagoland!  The steps are:

  1. Pick a date and time that work for you.
  2. Select a restaurant.
  3. Contact us - we create a new event, spread the word, attending the dinner . . .
  4. Make a reservation and have fun!

If you are willing to plan a supper in your area, Let Us Know!

    Come and meet other parents for a casual dinner to share stories about raising gifted children, laugh, lament, or provide/receive support on your parenting journey. We will get our palate excited by a creative take on comfort classics at a conveniently located restaurant in downtown Evanston. 

    This is the first of a series of parent supper on the north and northwest side of the city. If you live on the north side and cannot make this date, but have been watching jealously on all the parent supper action on the south side, please watch the CGCC calendar for updates and contact the host with your general availability and preferences to meet in the future.   

    This event is "free" as everyone will pay their own bill at the end of the evening. Please register and make changes to your RSVP, if needed, so that we can make the proper table arrangements.
