Charlotte's Web Cancer Fundraiser - Feb. 26 at Sweetwater Brewery
Cancer has touched far too many all too young people I know lately. In just the past few months we've known three people under 40 who were diagnosed. Now, I have received a press release about an upcoming cancer fundraiser in memory of Charlotte Nelson, the executive chef at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, who passed away this week from breast cancer.
I didn't know Chef Nelson, but she was far too young at just 37, and will clearly be missed by many. The fundraiser, Charlotte's Web - Cancer Touches All - was planned before she passed away, but will go on anyway to pay respect to Charlotte, bring awareness to the rare form of inflammatory breast cancer that took her life and to raise money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. 92% of donations to that organization go to directly back to research.
The event will take place on February 26 at SweetWater Brewery. From 6 to 10 p.m. Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q will host 16 of the South's top chefs. The event will include samples from all 16 chefs, passed hors d'oeuvres, live music from Moontower, and a silent auction.
US Foods is donating all chef proteins and Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, and Big Tex Decatur will provide passed hors d'oeuvres. Cathead Vodka is among the distributors providing alcohol and signature cocktails are being crafted by some of Atlanta's top bartenders including Irv Howard, Tiffanie Barriere and Jerry Slater.
For more information contact Naomi Green at email@example.com or call 404-660-8646. Read more about the event and Charlotte herself here.
