An Adult-Only Evening In Support of Purple Asparagus



Emceed By NBC5’s Siafa Lewis!


Honoring Whole Foods Market


You’ve supported Purple Asparagus, by day, in classrooms and farmers’ markets across Chicago. Now join us for an all-new, adults-only social event and fundraiser, Purple By Night.

On Sunday, April 30th, come to The Dawson for food and festivities benefiting Purple Asparagus, the award-winning nonprofit that educates children, families and the community about eating that’s good for the body and the planet.

You’ll find:

Our flagship program, Delicious Nutritious Adventures, brings healthy foods to life for kids in elementary school classrooms all over Chicago, many of which serve at-risk children. In the 2016 -2017 school year, this nine-month long program is being delivered in 14 Chicago Public Schools reaching over 1,000 students, but we have a waiting list of 50 schools that also want to participate. We believe that every child should have the chance to discover new, wholesome foods. Your participation in Purple By Night will help us make that a reality.
