Many THANKS to everyone who attended the Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope’s 1st charity event of 2017 at the Old Crow Smokehouse River North in Chicago.  Your participation in this event directly contributes to bring joy, hope and love to children and young adults being treated for cancer and other life threatening diseases.

A special thank you to Daniel Guerrero (Alyssa’s cousin), who coordinated the whole event with Samantha, the Old Crow Smokehouse’s owner.  Daniel sparked the idea of having a charity event at the Old Crow Smokehouse and he expended much effort in pulling this together.  Thanks also go out to Samantha for providing the atrium on the 2nd floor, the delicious BBQ, mac & cheese and all the drinks for our guests.
