Taste of Hope Leadership Council

This dedicated group of volunteers promotes the success of the American Cancer Society by engaging corporate partners and supporting distinguished events in the Chicago market, with a focus on the Taste of Hope event. By doing so, this group will assist in saving lives and creating more birthdays by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back. We thank them for their tireless support. 


All sponsors and underwriters are invited to designate a representative to serve on the council, and additional volunteers are always welcome! Please contact Jane Boersma at (312) 279-7365 or, or click here for more information.
