About this event

Join us for our Fifth Annual Cocktails for the Cure! This year, we’re looking forward to connecting with each of you again in person!

With customer support and fundraising all year long, the tgin Foundation is able to assist women with transportation to and from their medical appointments. To date, close to 650 rides have been given to breast health (and Covid-19 vaccine) appointments, and with your help, we’ll get to 1,000 rides.

Each year, the tgin Foundation hosts a Cocktails for the Cure event to raise donations to further meet the Foundation's yearly goal. Proceeds from this event directly benefit the Foundation's mission to give better access to breast health services through transportation expenses. Our goal this year is to raise $50,000 toward these initiatives.

This year’s event will be hosted by Audrina Bigos and will feature live music from DJ LMS, a powerhouse packed panel and interactive fundraising experience, as well as a special cocktail hour/cocktail demonstration from our sponsor Love, Tito’s.

Please refer to your ticket level for arrival times. You will only be permitted to enter at the time specified on your ticket. The after party starts at 9PM.

*This event is a 21+ event only. By purchasing tickets, you confirm that you are age 21+. Please enjoy responsibly.

Where does my donation go?

The tgin Foundation facilitates many initiatives that lead back to our mission, which is where your donation goes. We partner with Lyft to provide free rides to breast health appointments as well as COVID vaccinations. To date, we secured close to $23,000 in rides. In October, we recruit over 50 ambassadors and creators to spread information about early detection and methods to mitigate the risk of breast cancer via social media. We also educate women on the health disparities black women in Chicago experience, in an effort to close the gap and empower women to be their best health advocates. For more information on our initiatives, follow us on social media, and visit our website at tginfoundation.org.

What is the tgin Foundation, and what do they do?

In 2015, Harvard graduate and Founder of Thank God It’s Natural, Chris-Tia Donaldson was diagnosed with breast cancer at the young age of 36. During her treatment, she learned that having money could make the difference between living and dying when it came to treating this condition. In her observation, very few organizations existed that provided support and social services to help women with transportation, child care, or seeking disability leave from their place of employment.

Up until her passing in November 2021, she used her success in the beauty space to advocate for women experiencing financial difficulties, who are undergoing treatment, to highlight health disparities due to race and socio-economic factors, and to empower women to listen to their bodies through the tgin Foundation.
