CHANGING THE FUTURE… ONE BITE AT A TIME!

Purple By Night is more than just an exciting evening of tasty treats and joyous celebration of the past year’s accomplishments. The generosity of our friends, partners, sponsors and funders at Purple By Night is vital to the delivery of our mission and our cause in the coming year.

Every dollar we raise at Purple By Night facilitates the delivery of our Delicious Nutritious Adventures to hundreds of children across Chicagoland. We can’t do it without YOU!

Join us on Sunday, April 7, 2019 from 6-9 PM at the Ivy Room At Tree Studios for our delicious adventure after dark!


JOIN US AS WE CELEBRATE

We celebrate our impact in the lives of kids and families in Chicago.

We celebrate the donors, funders, staff and volunteers who give generously and work so
very hard for the kids and families we serve.

We celebrate the potential of every Little Spear who will grow into a healthy, adventurous eater of fruits, vegetables and whole grains for a lifetime.

HELP SUPPORT OUR PROGRAMS

The evening will include a live and silent auction to benefit Purple Asparagus’ flagship program: ‘Delicious Nutritious Adventures.’ This year’s auction features a real-time online bidding platform powered by Givergy.

Donors can visit Givergy to register before the event and bid on items from home. The platform will allow the Purple Asparagus community to participate even if supporters are unable to attend in person. Silent auction items include fine wine, artwork, and a signed football from Chicago Bear Kyle Fuller, along with a host of restaurant gift certificates as well as food and adult beverage items.

SOW THE SEEDS OF THE FUTURE

We sow the seeds of hope, opportunity and possibility for the future of Chicago’s youth.

Your financial support of Purple By Night sows the seeds of our work for another year of impact in the lives of Chicago’s youth and families.

By purchasing your ticket, sponsoring the event, donating a ticket to a program participant/partner, purchasing a silent auction item, sponsoring an ingredient and/or giving generously during the live paddle raise YOU will significantly impact our work, our mission and our community.

We look forward to seeing you at Purple By Night!

THE IMPERFECT PRODUCE MARKET

 
 

Stroll through the Imperfect Produce Market and peruse the ingredients you can “purchase” for the Little Spears in our Delicious Nutritious Adventures program. Your gift can provide a Delicious Nutritious Adventures ingredient for a class, a school or the entire program!

As a Thank You for your gift, you will receive a Delicious Nutritious recipe card commemorating your donation and your choice of fresh Imperfect Produce to take home and enjoy.

Our friends from Imperfect Produce will also be available to show you how to get healthy, delicious fruits and veggies for about 30% less than grocery stores, delivered to your door AND make a no-cost-to-you $10 gift to Purple Asparagus.
