Food Frenzy Raises Money for Foster Care & Adoption Program

Little City Junior Board’s 9th Annual Food Frenzy was an incredible evening as more than $13,000 was raised to benefit Little City’s Foster Care & Adoption Program.

The festive event took place May 4th at Low Res Studio in Chicago where attendees enjoyed gourmet food and drinks from the area’s hottest restaurants. Participating restaurants and breweries included Beleaf Salad, Cesar’s Mexican Restaurant, Chopo Chicken, Fred’s at Barney’s New York, Jordan’s Food of Distinction, Haymarket Pub & Brewery, honeygrow, Lagunitas Brewery, Little Beans Café, Portillo’s, Meli Café, Revolution Brewing and Tiburon Rum.

In addition to the delicious food and drink, attendees also enjoyed a special silent auction and raffle table. All the money raised will go to Little City’s Foster Care & Adoption program, which is celebrating its 25th year of finding loving families for children with disabilities.

The program continues to grow as the program worked with more than 50 families in 2017 to provide both foster placements and forever families.

“It’s a great opportunity to put on an event like the Food Frenzy to help so many children and families find loving and caring relationships,” said Conor Desmond, Little City Junior Board President. “Little City’s Foster Care & Adoption Program has been a vital
resource for children with disabilities for 25 years and we want to do our part to make sure the next 25 years are just as successful.”

The event would not have been possible without the support of the evening’s donors and sponsors. Thank you to Gold Sponsors: Paramount Staffing and Brendan Scanlan; Silver Sponsors: Andrea and Ed Hockfield, Conor Desmond, Tim Desmond and South Barrington Dental Care; Bronze Sponsors: Nicholas Butchko and Patrick Bave; and Media Sponsor: Chicago Magazine. And thank you again to all participating restaurants and breweries and to everyone who made the event a huge success!
