2021 PRESENTED BY:
OUR 2020 REINVENTION
WHERE CULINARY ARTS, COCKTAILS, AND CREATIVITY COLLIDE.
Thursday, November 4, 2021
TASTE OF HOPE brings award-winning chefs and Chicago foodies together to celebrate the American Cancer Society's progress in the fight against cancer.
The 8th Annual Taste of Hope will be held on November 4, 2021. This year supporters will enjoy their culinary experience at home or in a private room at a prominent Chicago restaurant. Taste of Hope has always featured our wonderful Chicagoland restaurants and this year is no different. In today’s environment, the restaurant industry has been particularly hit hard and we want to make sure we continue to support this important community.
Now in its seventh year, the event is hosted annually by the American Cancer Society’s Taste of Hope Executive Leadership Committee and has raised over $2,300,000 to support the American Cancer Society’s mission and goal of eliminating cancer as a major health problem.
While enjoying the best of Chicago's culinary scene, we raise our glasses to:
Leading the fight for a world without cancer
Preventing 2.9 million cancer deaths since 1991
Promoting healthy lifestyles including eating right and staying active
But even as we celebrate a 29% decline in cancer death rates, we know there is more left to do. One in two men and one in three women will get cancer in their lifetime. Simply put, the cancer fight still needs you.
