Want to eat lunch with Hillary Clinton?

Here’s how. Sort of.

Clinton, the former first lady and secretary of state, will serve as the keynote speaker at Chicago House’s 5th Annual Speaker Series Luncheon on Sept. 18.

Guests will enjoy a three-course lunch and hear remarks from Clinton alongside Chicago House CEO Stan Sloan at Chicago Hilton’s international ballroom from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Organizers expect more than 1,200 attendees.

The luncheon aims to bring awareness and raise funds to support HIV and AIDS activism, while also celebrating the accomplishments of Chicago House, an organization that provides permanent, community-based housing, support services and prevention outreach to more than 1,500 individuals and families struggling with HIV and AIDS.

“Five years ago, when the Speaker Series concept was just a dream, we never imagined it could become such a highly regarded fundraising vehicle,” said Jeremy Hilborn, Chicago House’s Director of Individual Giving and Special Events, in a release. “Our staff and board continue to work so hard to shed light on issues that are important to Chicago House and our own community, all alongside the inspirational words of amazing and respected leaders. We are proud to welcome Secretary Clinton to celebrate the fifth anniversary of this inspirational event.”
