Charlotte’s Web: Benefit at Sweetwater Brewery to Stomp Out Cancer

Charlotte Nelson, executive chef at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, lost her battle with breast cancer after only being diagnosed this past Thanksgiving. She was only 37 years young. My own mother was diagnosed with cancer at 36 and died at age 39. I know, first hand, how devastating this must be for Charlotte’s family. An event was planned for February 26 to support Charlotte, but she passed away on February 9. The proceeds from Charlotte’s Web are now going to go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation –91 percent of donations there go to directly back to research.

Friends, family and chefs from around the region are coming together in a big way on February 26 at SweetWater Brewery. From 6 to 10 p.m. Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q will host 16 of the South’s top chefs to rally in support of fellow chef and friend, Charlotte Nelson. The event, Charlotte’s Web…Cancer Touches Us All, will include samples from all 16 chefs, passed hors d’oeuvres, live music from Moontower, and a silent auction.

Tasting tables will be set up at SweetWater Brewery where donors will experience offerings from chefs of the region. US Foods is donating all chef proteins and Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, and Big Tex Decatur will provide passed hors d’oeuvres. Cathead Vodka is among the distributors providing alcohol and signature cocktails are being crafted by some of Atlanta’s top bartenders including Irv Howard, Tiffanie Barriere and Jerry Slater.
