The Infant Welfare Society of Evanston (IWSE) held its 5th annual fundraising event, Warm Your Palate, on Thursday, February 25, 2016 at Now We’re Cookin’ in Evanston, IL. Brightly colored spring flowers, warm hospitality and the aromas of delicious food welcomed a sell-out crowd to this much anticipated evening.

We are grateful to our participating chefs for their generous support and creative food offerings. Participating chefs included Greg Carter, Ten Mile House; Vince diBattista, Campagnola and Union Pizzeria; Debbie and Jamie Evans, the Peckish Pig; Marco Ferrarini, La Macchina; Armando Gonzalez and Marcos Rivera, Libertad; Brian Huston, Boltwood; and Juan Rodriguez, 90 Miles Cuban Café. Desserts were provided by Ryan and Kathia Jones of Gotta B Crepes, and Beth’s Little Bake Shop. Michael Smylie of Smylie Brothers Brewing Company provided two of their craft brews for tasting.
