YORKVILLE, Ill — The Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce Woman 2 Woman will host this month’s luncheon Tuesday, July 9, at the newly opened and remodeled Kennedy Point Restaurant & Pub located at Blackberry Oaks Golf Course in Bristol.

Jay DeMarco, owner of Kennedy Point Restaurant, will present this month’s fun and informative summer program.

With 17 years of experience in the restaurant business, managing some of the greatest restaurants in the Chicago area — from Fairbank’s Steakhouse at Hollywood Casino to Rose-bud Italian Restaurant, — DeMarco will share grilling tips and techniques as he prepares our outdoor lunch.  This event will enhance the abilities of any grilling chef, so make sure you attend.
