I just wanted to remind everyone that on Tuesday, February 26th (aka this Tuesday), there is a fundraiser at SweetWater Brewery for Fox Bros. BBQ executive chef Charlotte Nelson.  Nelson recently succumbed to breast cancer.  The event will serve to celebrate Charlotte’s life.  Meanwhile, the proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Research Center, which is widely regarded for its extremely low overhead (aka … the money you give will end up in the scientist’s hands).

There will be plenty of “action” at the event. Ryan Hidinger of Staplehouse, who is in the midst of his own cancer treatment, is scheduled to speak.  There will be roughly twenty chefs (including Ryan Smith of ESS and Eddie Hernandez of TdS) slinging grub; and, in addition, tickets to the event are now just $50 (originally they were $100).  So basically … GO!!!!!

It should be a rocking good but bittersweet time; check out the details after the jump.

Sad news from over the weekend.  Charlotte Nelson of Fox Bros BBQ has passed.  She was 37 and she had breast cancer.  On Friday, Jonathan Fox emailed folks to update everyone on the status of Charlotte.  In that email, Fox mentioned an event for “Charlotte’s Web”, to help curtail medical costs and ease the family’s tension.  Sadly, Charlotte passed away on Saturday.  However, I have been told that the event is still a go, though the details are a little in flux.

The event is on Tuesday, February 26th, tickets are $100 and there are a bevy of participating restaurants/chefs.  You’ll get some grub (in the form of passed hors d’oeuvres), some booze, and you’ll get to participate in a silent auction.  Meanwhile, Moontower will be providing all of your auditory needs.

Tickets can be purchased via brown paper tickets and details of the event can be found on event website SupportCharlottesWeb.comThe website has not been updated to reflect Charlotte’s passing, but updates will be posted as soon as they are available.

I’ll update this post with any pertinent information I receive.

UPDATE:

The proceeds from Charlotte’s Web are now going to go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation –92 percent of donations there go to directly back to research.
