Event Info

WHERE CULINARY ARTS, COCKTAILS, AND CREATIVITY COLLIDE.

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

 

Taste of Hope has always featured our wonderful Chicagoland restaurants and this year is no different. 
 

Now in its eleventh year, the event is hosted annually by the American Cancer Society’s Taste of Hope Executive Leadership Committee and has raised over $4,300,000 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 3.8 million cancer deaths since 1991.

  • Promoting healthy lifestyles including eating right and staying active.​

 

But even as we celebrate a 33% 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.
