St. Baldrick’s fundraiser held at Noon Whistle

Yesterday, Noon Whistle Brewing hosted a fundraiser to support the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a childhood cancer research charity.

The Brew for a Cure event consisted of food, drinks, games, raffles, and supporters getting their heads shaved. A percentage of the proceeds were donated to charity courtesy of Noon Whistle Brewing.

The event was organized by Shawn and Jennifer Nolan who were honoring their son Patrick, who passed away 20 years after he was diagnosed with Hepatocellular Carcinoma. The Nolans set a $25,000 donation goal and as of right now, they have raised $35,511.

Those who are still interested in donating can do so online.

Loaves & Fishes Chef Showdown

Loaves & Fishes Community Services will host its Chef Showdown on April 19.

The event features a competition between chefs from two Naperville restaurants: Allegory and Bev’s. They’ll have celebrity sous chefs helping them create a three-course meal in just one hour, using food from the Loaves & Fishes Market in a stadium-style cooking event. A panel of judges will then vote on the cuisine. 

Food from My Chef Catering and specialty cocktails will also be included at night. Proceeds will help Loaves & Fishes in its mission to help provide essential services to struggling families in the community.

The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Loaves & Fishes Food Distribution Hub at 580 Exchange Club in Aurora. Ticket information is available on the Loaves & Fishes website.
