CHOP Challenge

logo Chop Challenge 2022

Memorial Healthcare System's Foundation raised nearly $100,000 at its 2nd Annual Chop Challenge and Food & Wine Festival  on June 1, 2022 – a fundraiser to benefit the Memorial Cancer Institute “Growing Stronger Together” campaign, as well as our cardiac and vascular, neuroscience, and other adult service lines.

This year's event kicked-off with a farmer’s market and culminated with a Food and Wine Festival where guests feasted on culinary tastings from area restaurants and raffles.

Memorial physicians teamed up for the evening's Chop Challenge and showcased their culinary talents in an entertaining competition. They created dishes using ingredients recommended by Memorial Cancer Institute dieticians that promote gut health and the prevention and survivorship of cancer.

The Chop Challenge and Food & Wine Festival featured educational information on the relationship between a healthy gut and an improved immune system, heart health, brain health, the digestive system and prevention of cancer and cardiac disease.
