The health and safety of our immune compromised supporters, volunteers, staff, and community at-large are of the utmost importance. Therefore, we will be requiring all individuals attending this year’s Taste of Hope to be fully vaccinated with either one dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine or two-doses of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.  Instructions on how we will be tracking this is coming soon.

 

Certainly, we are erring on the side of caution and proceeding deliberately and carefully. However, as a public health organization that serves the immune-compromised, our responsibility is greater to protect the health, safety, and well-being of those that trust us.

 

We regularly assess potential for in-person events and strictly adhere to all federal and local health department guidance including event size and masking.

Taste of Hope brings award-winning chefs and Chicago foodies together to celebrate the American Cancer Society's progress in the fight against cancer. ​

 

This year the event will be held on November 4, 2021. Taste of Hope has always featured our wonderful Chicagoland restaurants and this year is no different. 
 

Now in its eighth year, the event is hosted annually by the American Cancer Society’s Taste of Hope Executive Leadership Council 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.
