With the passing of October and Breast Cancer Awareness month, we are wrapping up our third annual Chicago’s In Good Taste Campaign. While the total has not yet been tallied, we’re hoping to have doubled our results from last year’s $30,000.
This campaign united close to 150 local businesses, predominantly restaurants, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The ultimate goal for the participating restaurants, dining services, spas and other organizations was to raise money for breast cancer research. When guests dined at the participating establishments or utilize participating services, patrons had the opportunity to donate $1 or more to the Lynn Sage Foundation. All donations generated benefit the Lynn Sage Scholars Program at Northwestern University.
We’ve also been fortunate enough to be asked to be one of four beneficiaries for the LuxeHome Chill event which features 30 luxury LuxeHome boutiques hosting top Chicago-area chefs and superb wines from winemakers worldwide.
“The Lynn Sage Foundation has given me the support to examine the role of obesity and obesity related genes in breast cancer. This will help our breast cancer patients live longer and better lives.”
