Celebrating its 10th anniversary, The Lynn Sage Foundation’s IN GOOD TASTE campaign will bring together more than 160 of Chicago’s top restaurants and bars to raise awareness and support for local breast cancer research during the month of October. From Oct. 1 – 31, participating eateries will donate proceeds from select dishes, desserts and drinks to help find a cure for breast cancer. Patrons can also participate by adding a donation directly to their bill.
"For 10 years, the Chicago restaurant community has generously embraced helping us raise awareness and funding for local breast cancer research,” explains Laura Sage. “Chicagoans can show their support by dining out during the month of October at one of our many restaurant partners. By ordering one of the delicious IN GOOD TASTE ‘specials’ or simply adding a $1 to your bill, you will be making a big difference in our quest to end breast cancer."
What began in 2008 with 40 restaurants has grown into something much bigger. This year’s partners include Barrio, Big Star, Coda Di Vopa, Eli’s Cheesecake, Francesca’s, Gibson’s, Le Colonial, Little Goat Diner, Porter Kitchen, Piccolo Sogno, Ramen-san and many more.
Like years past, all proceeds from IN GOOD TASTE will benefit The Lynn Sage Scholars program which funds some of the country’s most promising researchers in the field of breast cancer. To date, The Lynn Sage Foundation has contributed more than $1.3 million to support pioneering, young researchers at Northwestern University and Rush University. In 2017, The Lynn Sage Scholars program will simultaneously fund three Scholars for the first time.
“Our ability to continue funding multiple Scholars at institutions like Northwestern and Rush Universities is dependent upon the success of fundraising campaigns such as IN GOOD TASTE” said Sage. “We provide two-year scholarships to doctors early in their career. Our focus is on innovative, novel research that will create a better future for breast cancer patients.”
IN GOOD TASTE will run Sunday, Oct. 1 – Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017.
