To our shared community:

In response to the unprecedented and necessary effects and restrictions of the Corona Virus on us all, Gilhooley’s Events and Catering at Saint Xavier University would like to share our efforts and plans to continue to serve our great community through this time!

We are very strong because of our community and we would like to update you on our plans during this time:

First and most importantly, we would like to focus on helping families and those in need. So, beginning Thursday, March 19th we will be offering free meals and deliveries to as many seniors in need who are unable to either get out or are having financial difficulties. Please give us a call to discuss at 773-233-2200 if you or someone you know is in need!

If you know a full family in need, please have them reach out to us directly.

Also, because soup is nutritious and comforting to anyone with flu-like symptoms, we will be giving all families at no cost a quart of our homemade soup to all customers who want to stop in and pickup a quart!

We will be open for carry out and delivery of a majority of our menu on a daily basis. Also will have a selection of “family of 4” meals for $25, or you can order an individual meal for $10. A great value!.. Our hours will be 11-6pm daily. Please see the details of those menus below.

Chicken Limone/Pasta Olive Oil/Soup
Baked Cavatappi/Garlic Breadsticks/Soup

The Gilhooley’s and Saint Xavier Families have always been grateful for the strength we have shared with our community (Families, Friends, Schools & Churches). In these times, we all see how valuable it is to support and help each other! We have always been grateful for our community and have always made it a priority to be there to strengthen and help in any way possible!
