Brunching for Babies

Eat, drink and be merry with Santa!

We're excited to be hosting our second annual Brunching for Babies event!  We're holding it at the same venue as last year, located at 2521 N. Halsted St. in Lincoln Park.  Another amazing brunch buffet will be provided by the Chicago Bite Club mystery chef, Santa will make an appearance 11-12 for wishes and FREE pics, and the magic of Mike O'Donnell with be mystifying everyone 1130-130.  We're also going to have another fantastic variety of raffle items to win.

Tickets this year are $50 for adults ($60 after December 1st) and $5 for kids 2-12.  Under 2 is free.  

Net proceeds from this year's event will be used to make a donation to Lurie Children's Hospital for the purchase of transport cooling equipment.  This equipment is used to cool HIE babies while in transit from a hospital without cooling equipment to a NICU that is equipped for cooling.  This allows for better and faster treatment of HIE babies while also supporting babies of families who deliver at a hospital that does not have the staff, equipment, resources, or activity level to support a NICU or a full cooling system.  

Last year's event was a smashing success and we're looking forward to packing the house again this year!
