St. Baldrick’s Foundation Head–Shaving Event
St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives.
St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events began as a challenge between businessmen and have grown from one event in 2000 to over 1,200 events in 2016, raising critical funds for childhood cancer research. Events take place in pubs, restaurants, schools, churches, parks, malls, military bases, firehouses and any other place you can imagine.
Tassosstaff for the event moved gracefully, but with authority to marshal the goods and people in and out of the narrow loading area and after only a few minutes we were standing in the museum.

In honor of Tassos’ participation in the Grand Chefs Gala, starting Jan. 26 and lasting throughout 2012, TASSOS will donate a portion of proceeds from Tassos® Race to the Cure Basket sales to further research toward the cure to Cystic Fibrosis. This gourmet gift basket includes a variety of award winning products used by the very chefs participating in the Grand Chefs Gala event and features a custom, embroidered 4 Star Executive Chef’s Coat commemorating the 2012 Grand Chefs Gala.
“Doing everything we can to help in finding the cure to a disease that afflicts more than 30,000 children and adults in the US is as much a part of our business plan as providing the best, high quality Mediterranean products that the world has to offer,” said Michael Chronopolous, CFO / COO Tassos LLC. “We are thrilled to do our part in working with both the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the stellar collection of world class Chefs assembled for this worthy cause.”
Tassos encourages all of its loyal customers to give the gift of life-saving research and join them in taking one step closer in the race to the cure by donating to CF today at CFF.ORG and by making your next gift for friends, relations or business colleagues the gift of life saving research and gourmet food with the purchase of the Tassos® Race to the Cure Basket.

I’d also like to specifically acknowledge all of you here tonight. None of this happens without you. Your participation and financial support is essential for the Chicago Chapter, in fact the Foundation Nationally, to reach its fundraising goals. So, it’s not without a sense of humility, knowing that the more important honor is the honor gained by helping, discovering and healing, that, on behalf of the Tassos Group, I gratefully, respectfully, humbly, say thanks to you for this.”
