Wine & Dine and Raise Funds for Breast Cancer ResearchJoin the Lynn Sage Foundation to Wine and Dine for a Good Cause in October!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the perfect time to wine and dine for a good cause! The Lynn Sage Foundation, a Chicago-based organization committed to finding a cure for breast cancer, supported by corporate sponsor Mesirow Financial, has partnered with more than 100 Chicagoland establishments for the 5th Annual Chicago's in Good Taste: A Breast Cancer Research Initiative.
Each time you dine at participating locations, donations ($1 per check - or more if you desire) will benefit the Lynn Sage Scholars Program at Northwestern University.
View the list of locations for 2012.
The Scholars Program has partnered with the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University to respond to high priority recruitment and retention needs by helping to fund promising faculty members on the threshold of their careers. Current Lynn Sage Scholar, Dr. Chonghui Cheng is researching the biological components and pathways that control tumor metastasis and recurrence.
The Lynn Sage Scholars effort is spearheaded by Halee and Laura Sage, the daughters of Lynn Sage, who passed away from breast cancer at the age of 39.

"The Lurie Cancer Center is proud to partner with the Lynn Sage Foundation through its annual 'In Good Taste' program. It offers a simple way for diners to eat locally and act globally in our fight against breast cancer. We are grateful to all of the patrons, restaurants, salons, and stores that support our cause each October," said Dr. Steve Rosen, Director of the Lurie Cancer Center.
