On May 27, 2019, PWE was proud to donate its services in support of the 2019 Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation’s Cook-Off For Cancer Event. PWE was tasked with helping to raise the caliber of this already successful event to further increase the fundraising and corporate sponsorship.



Founded by Chicago Cubs All-Star First Baseman Anthony Rizzo, the foundation raises money for cancer research and provides support to children and their families battling the disease. The Foundation is run entirely by Anthony’s family, his close friends and his management team with Anthony providing oversight and leadership.

Held at Morgan Manufacturing Company, the 7th Annual Cook-Off For Cancer featured over a dozen of Chicago’s best restaurants serving dishes alongside Anthony’s Chicago Cub teammates, including Kris Bryant, Jon Lester, Kyle Schwarber & Cole Hamels. In addition to providing first-class event management services, PWE also leveraged relationships with restaurant partners, vendors, and contacts citywide to minimize event costs and All told, between corporate sponsorship and incredible silent and live auctions, the event raised a record-breaking $1.8 million for cancer patients and their families.
