Media Flocks to First Look for Charity Preview & Tasting Event

Posted by: Colleen Moran

Last week, Chicagoland media saw a glimpse of what is to come at this year's benevolent black-tie charity gala, First Look for Charity on Friday, Feb. 12. There were 100 people in attendance, from reporters, publishers, bloggers and social media influencers. All gathered to sample scrumptious bites from a handful of highly-acclaimed, Chicago-based chefs.
The event was hosted at McGrath Acura Chicago and generated lots of buzz. In fact, during a Twitter chat co-hosted by food blogger Johanna Cook (@MommaCuisine), the chat directly reached more than 780,000 people and garnered a record-breaking 7.7 million impressions.
The #FLFC16 hashtag spread virtually nationwide to heighten awareness for an event that helps so many wonderful local charities! 
Check out the feature from ABC 7.
The 2016 First Look for Charity event is on Friday, Feb. 12, from 7-11 p.m. at McCormick Place. Tickets can be purchased here.
