Benefit Harvest Moon Dinner and Talk




The 11th annual Angelic Organics Learning Center 2018 Harvest Moon Dinner fundraiser will take place on September 13 at Theater on the Lake. There will be a reception with Dr. Jack Gilbert at 5 p.m. and dinner at 6 p.m. Participation in the Harvest Moon Dinner supports the Learning Center’s work to bring urban and rural people together to build our local food system.

       The newly renovated Theater on the Lake will be transformed into a magical urban farm oasis, filled with freshly harvested food and a menu designed by executive chef Cleetus Friedman, sourced from local farms and sustainable purveyors. Guests will enjoy live music by guitarist Mark Dvorak, adorable farm animal photo ops, craft cocktails, a farm store, delicious pies from Bang Bang and more. 

       This event honors the Learning Center’s farmer partners and celebrates the first year of innovative programming at the Lodge, a new camp and retreat facility providing additional in-depth learning experiences for students of all ages.

        A VIP discussion will be moderated by Monica Eng, of WBEZ, with Gilbert, author of Dirt Is Good: The Advantage of Germs for Your Child’s Developing Immune System, and Tom Spaulding, president of the Angelic Organics Association.

Location: 2401 N. Lake Shore Dr., Chicago. For more information and tickets, call 815-389-8455 or visit LearnGrowConnect.org/harvestmoon.
