Tickets are available for purchase at the Great Chicago Steak Out Booth at the FIA EXPO in Blue Hall - Salon C

The FIA Cares Great Chicago Steak Out gives companies and individuals in the futures, options and cleared swaps industry the opportunity to provide financial support to help feed those in need. Once again, the Chicago Private Dining Steakhouse Group, a prestigious collection of Chicago's top steakhouses, presents the finest dishes from their kitchens for you to sample and enjoy. The Great Chicago Steak Out takes place annually at the end of FIA's Futures & Options Expo, taking place October 16-18, 2018.

Since 2008, FIA has raised more than $3,720,000 for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. The Food Depository, founded in 1979, makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of 700 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger. Last year, the Food Depository distributed more than 71 million pounds of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, dairy products and meat, the equivalent of 164,000 meals every day. FIA is the leading global trade organization for the futures, options and centrally cleared derivatives markets, with offices in Brussels, London, Singapore and Washington, D.C. and roots in Chicago.

We’re putting the band back together! Late night jamming for the Food Depository!

The all-star futures industry band, Pork Belly and the Out-Trades, is getting back together at the legendary blues club Buddy Guy’s Legends after the Great Chicago Steak Out on Thursday, October 18. Get ready to jam with the band and support the Greater Chicago Food Depository at this special event hosted by FIA Tech.
