The Chicago’s In Good Taste Campaign unites local restaurants during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with the ultimate goal of raising money for breast cancer research in Chicago. Our goal is to raise over $100,000 during 2018, our 11th annual campaign, and help you engage your patrons through philanthropy.
Patrons of participating restaurants have the option of adding $1 or more to their bill, or purchasing a special menu item to benefit The Lynn Sage Foundation. The Foundation provides campaign marketing materials, including table tents, check presenters and posters, limited media and PR support. The Foundation will work with interested partners to create unique approaches to the campaign and help motivate staff to participate. We ask that all partners commit to raise a minimum of $100.
