About Ala Carte Entertainment

An active community leader, Jim Earley of Ala Carte Entertainment devotes considerable energy and support to organizations that work on behalf of people in the Chicago area. Despite the demands of his fast-paced career, Mr. Earley volunteers for a wide range of charity events that extend beyond his duties at Ala Carte Entertainment, which he leads as Corporate General Manager. Toward this goal, he donates his own time and services or hosts fundraisers at restaurant and catering venues owned by Ala Carte Entertainment. James Earley and Ala Carte Entertainment maintain long-term relationships with philanthropic, industry, and community groups to help them meet their service objectives.

Recently, Jim Earley completed more than a year of work as a member of the Schaumburg Septemberfest Committee. The festival attracts about 250,000 visitors each year from the village of Schaumburg and beyond for a three-day span of concerts and performances, and Ala Carte Entertainment is among its supporters. It includes a carnival, a parade, and a beauty pageant, and proceeds support community events. Mr. Earley oversees the popular Taste of Schaumburg. This much-anticipated dine-around experience allows guests to enjoy offerings by some of the village’s best eateries. Under his direction, 25 restaurants participated in the 2011 Taste of Schaumburg, including The Snuggery, a long-time favorite owned by Ala Carte Entertainment.

Other events to which Ala Carte Entertainment and Jim Earley have committed significant time include the Festival of Chefs, which benefits the New Horizon Center for the Developmentally Disabled. Ala Carte Entertainment also sponsors golf tournaments that generate funding for the Special Leisure Services Foundation, an organization that provides recreational opportunities for children and adults with disabilities. Ala Carte Entertainment was even inspired to undertake its own Ala Carte Entertainment Golf Classic. Ala Carte Entertainment directs proceeds from this event to the Northwest Special Recreation Association, a beneficiary of the Special Leisure Services Foundation.

In recognition of his accomplishments at Ala Carte Entertainment and the Chicago restaurant business, the Illinois Restaurant Association appointed Jim Earley to its Advisory Council. A member of that organization’s Government Relations Committee, Mr. Earley used his expertise gained at Ala Carte Entertainment to provide sound analysis and advice on issues that affect the food and beverage industry. The Chicago Foodservice Marketing Club voted to give him its Sparkplug Award for his tireless work and enthusiasm for Ala Carte Entertainment and the industry in general; in 2003, the group named him to its Hall of Fame.
