A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of attending an awesome 1st: the 1st Annual Cuisine for Cancer event presented by Imerman Angels and Sleefood, founder of ChariPick. Should you consider attending this event next year? The answer’s a resounding YAY!
First, location location location!
Morgan Manufacturing sports a gorgeous rooftop, 360 views and cool street art lingering below. With semi private cozy couches and ample space, we couldn’t get enough roof time. We were also floored at the end of the evening when we realized the venue was 3x the size than we originally thought as we stumbled into a huge dance area and dessert nook.
Second, cuisine and charity!
What lame-o doesn’t love tacos? And why doesn’t the taco emoji exist yet, we must know. The Latin cuisine theme birthed 20+ unique tacos from famous Chicago restaurants like Mercadito and Carnivale.
At almost every taco stop, guests got a chance to enter to win gift cards or goodies from the restaurant. Each restaurant was also paired with a cancer charity. We loved that each charity was represented by volunteers and you could learn more about each org at every taco detour.
*Only suggestion, more vegetarian tacos would be a nice touch. Monica munched on too many a lettuce and salsa taco while Kate had a taco tub full of options.
We are super excited for the return of this event next year and hope you come too! Stay taco tuned for the future date.
