The main event will take place virtually from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. This event will feature recipes that will help with your holiday menus, as guests cook alongside Chef Cribb.

CCP serves children battling cancer throughout the Carolinas. Established in 2001, CCP helps overcome the enormous challenges of treatment access and financial needs, providing funds for travel expenses, lodging, and meals away from home. With only nine pediatric cancer treatment locations in the two states, families must often travel great distances for lifesaving treatment, sometimes to New York, Houston or beyond. CCP currently serves over 1,200 families that are facing childhood cancer. By providing the assistance they need, families can focus on their child during their cancer journey.
Tickets and sponsor opportunities are available at https://www.childrenscancerpartners.org/. Proceeds raised from the Taste of Thankfulness event will directly impact Carolina children on their cancer journey.
