What is the Pilot Light Associate Board?
The purpose of the Pilot Light Associate Board (AB) is to promote, raise awareness, and fundraise for Pilot Light’s food education programming in Chicago. Members will support Pilot Light in cultivating relationships in the community and engaging others via social media, in social functions and events, and by volunteering at Pilot Light events.
The AB comprises the board at large and elected members of the leadership team. The leadership team is a small group of dedicated individuals who are stakeholders and committee leaders for the AB as a whole; they hold the primary responsibilities of organizing the AB fundraising and outreach efforts. The Associate Board at large members and the leadership board collaborate to support the AB’s fundraising and outreach efforts.

2023 Event – Trivia Night at Paulie Gee’s
In March 2023, the AB hosted a trivia night with Whaddyaknow? Trivia at Paulie Gee’s in Logan Square. Associate Board members and supporters enjoyed pizza and drinks while competing in a trivia competition that included some food education-themed questions promoting Pilot Light’s mission. A raffle fundraiser featured prizes from local vendors including a cheese tasting at Beautiful Rind, a gourmet snack box from All Together Now,a giftcard to Lula Cafe and Opening Day tickets to the Chicago Cubs. Proceeds from the raffle raised over $700 in support of Pilot Light’s food education programming! Thank you to all of the partners who made this event such a success and to everyone who turned out to support Pilot Light!
