Helpings of Hope


Thank You!

On Thursday, November 10, over 130 supporters of Franciscan Outreach gathered at Salvage One for the 4th Annual Helpings of Hope event. This fun-filled evening featured some of Chicago’s best local restaurants, breweries, and wine, as they prepared samples for guests to enjoy.

The evening also featured the Ultimate Tasting raffle, where one lucky winner took home over $800 worth of Chicago food experiences, including gift certificates to several of the evening’s featured restaurants, and a cooking class with Chef Dre of Signature Plates.

Our featured guests speakers for the evening, Curtis Melton and Pete Razutis, both veterans, shared their inspiring stories of how Franciscan Outreach provided them with help and hope.

Thank you to all those who supported this year’s Helpings of Hope! 


When:   Thursday, November 10, 2016 | 7pm – 10pm
Where:  Salvage One
1840 W. Hubbard Street | Chicago, IL 60622

All proceeds from the evening directly benefit Franciscan Outreach programs so that we can continue the critical work of helping our Chicago neighbors in need.
