Chef Sean Hall has traveled quite the interesting road. From Executive Chef at a major Las Vegas Hotel, to training new chefs, to restaurant owner, caterer, and now his experiences in Topeka – and ups and downs along the way – Hall has a story to tell. He will be the featured speaker at the March C5Alive POWER luncheon on Thursday, March 11, to be held at Hickory Hall in Forest Park.
Hall will talk about how he ended up in Topeka, his faith journey, his partnership with Operation Food Secure, his culinary background and his new position and vision as Director of Food Operations at Topeka Rescue Mission. The luncheon will also be catered by Chef Hall’s team.
Forest Park, 3150 SE 10th, is one of Topeka’s hidden gems. Located just across the street from Reser’s, Forest Park is a secluded conference and retreat center nestled in a wooded area, providing a venue for overnight camps, Boy Scouts, 4-H, family reunions, weddings, conferences, retreats, business meetings, youth groups, and much more.
The cost to attend a C5 luncheon is $10 for C5Alive members and first-time guests who RSVP, and $12 at the door. Non-members and repeat guests pay $15. C5 luncheons are open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend, organizers said. RSVPs and inquiries can be sent to info@C5Alive.org.
C5Alive “POWER” luncheons are held on the second Thursday of each month. The next monthly C5Alive “POWER” Luncheon will be held April 8.
C5Alive is part of Capital City Chamber of Commerce (C5), an organization founded in 2009, dedicated to developing and uniting Christian Leadership in the community, involving businesses, non-profits and churches.

In addition to monthly “POWER” luncheons held on the second Thursday of each month, C5 also hosts periodic business fairs and other events, including EASTERFEST, the annual Topeka Easter Parade and Family Fun Fest, held on N. Kansas Avenue and in Garfield Park on the day before Easter (cancelled for 2021). The group is planning a Harvest Festival this fall.
