Gourmet Puerto Rico will feature 5 food stations and celebrate Puerto Rico’s leading Chefs, global cuisine, culture, music, tourisim and much more. Hosted by WGN’s Ana María Belaval, Gourmet Puerto Rico will propel all aspects of Puerto Rican cuisine and cocktails.

Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center (SRBCC), the longest-standing Latino cultural center in Chicago, played a key role in supporting Puerto Rican artists after hurricane María, creating the Chicago Hurricane Aid for Puerto Rican Arts, and promoting ongoing collaborations and exchanges to maintain the vibrancy of the island’s artistic scene. SRBCC is also the fiscal sponsor and one of the leading organizations in the Puerto Rican Agenda’s 3R’s for PR campaign, an initiative that raised close to $500,000 for relief and reconstruction projects in 40 municipalities after Irma and María.
