Celebrate and Support Healthy Eating for Kids with Purple Asparagus’ Corks & Crayons

August 23, 2012 | Written By:

HSC’s friends at Purple Asparagus are doing great work for kids’ health — they bring exciting and delicious hands-on nutrition education to classrooms, farmers’ markets and beyond. That’s why we’re excited that this weekend brings an opportunity to support Purple Asparagus at the eighth annual Corks & Crayons event.


Corks & Crayons is Purple Asparagus’ signature annual fun-for-all-ages event. Taking place in the gorgeous Greenhouse Loft and hosted by Michael Moody, NBC's Biggest Loser Chicago Tour fitness expert, this year’s event will feature tastings from some of Chicago’s top chefs including Top Chef contestants Heather Terhune (Sable) and Richie Farina (Moto), and Mindy Segal, winner of the 2012 James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry (Hot Chocolate).

The event will feature activities to keep the entire family entertained including a mini farmer’s market, tours of the LEED Certified Green Exchange, a photo booth, a silent auction, raffle prize drawings, art projects for the kids, and the revealing of the winner of Michael Moody’s Redefine Yourself Fitness Challenge!

Corks & Crayons will take place at Greenhouse Loft in the Green Exchange on 2545 W. Diversey in Chicago on Sunday, August 26 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets and proceeds from the Corks & Crayons event directly support Purple Asparagus’ educational programs.
