I want to tell you about a few gluten-free events that are going on in the next month that will leave you educated and your gluten-free tummies and hearts full! Sounds like a Win-Win!
Wildfire Gluten-Free Events – Minnesota and Beyond
Wildfire restaurants, based in the Chicago area, has done a great job accommodating gluten-free diet. The upscale restaurant chain specializes in steaks, chops and seafood and is perfect for people who eat gluten-free. Emma has been offered a gluten-free roll with her dinner! That’s a rarity.
On February 16th, the company is helping the celiac community out with a benefit for the University of Chicago’s Celiac Disease Center. The Gluten-Free Wine Dinner is priced at $60 per person (including tax and gratuity) Plus $25 of that price will be donated to the University of Chicago’s Celiac Disease Center.
In Minnesota on February 23rd, the Eden Prairie location is holding a Gluten Free Wine Dinner. The event is priced at $45 per person plus tax and gratuity. The company asked me to be the guest speaker at the event. So I will be there talking about dining out gluten-free and getting involved in the celiac community, and I hope you can too!
For more details on both of these events just go to the company’s website and scroll down to the event you’re looking for. I also reviewed the restaurant on my blog if you would like more information from a gluten-free standpoint.
Assert your Gluten-Freeness to Help People in Haiti!
The Gluten-Free Trading Company in Milwaukee is taking part in a fundraiser for Haiti. More than two weeks ago the earthquake struck killing an estimated 200,000 people. Thousands more are homeless and/or injured.
If you’re in the Milwaukee area on Sunday, January 31st The Gluten-Free Trading Company has invited people who eat gluten-free to the “Our Milwaukee 4 Haiti” event. It is going on from 1:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the Lakefront Brewery where they make New Grist Gluten-Free Beer. If you buy a New Grist Beer at the event, 100% of the proceeds will go to the relief efforts in Haiti. GFTC will also donate gluten-free snacks and a door prize for the event.
According to the email-invitation I received, the event will “support two organizations with ties to the Milwaukee area, Friends of The Orphans and Youthaiti. Both organizations have established practices in Haiti. At this time both are working to provide emergency relief, and they are also invested in the well-being and rebuilding of the country for the long term. Specifically, Friends of The Orpahans operates orphanages and a hospital (which was severely damaged by the earthquake), while Youthaiti works on sanitation and disease prevention projects.”
If you can’t make it to the event, you can donate to the Haiti relief effort through both of the organizations websites above.
I told you these events would leave you smarter and your hearts and tummies fuller….
