Thai_dish_buy-in.jpgWhile Celebrate!Evanston is sold out, now is your opportunity to sign-up for unique dining experiences provided by friends of ECF, with all proceeds to support the Foundation. Offering up their cooking and brewing talents the buy-in options include two fusion dining experiences — A Schmear of Abruzzo (Jewish-Italian) and Abruzzo meets Delta (Italian and Mississippi Delta), a beer and cheese pairing party, an authentic Thai dinner, and the annual ECF Fiesta.

musical revue is back!

Our singers bring you new lyrics to highlight this year's achievements, milestones and accomplishments of the Foundation and its partners. Rapheal Miller and Jenna Rapisarda will join returning performers Julie Chernoff and Patrick Keenan-Devlin.

And, once again Karen Jordan and Christian Farr provide their talents as the emcees of the evening's entertainment.
