We are a volunteer group dedicated to supporting others to quit tobacco. Most of us are past smokers who have quit with the help of the services provided by the the Tobacco Cessation Program of the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, Northwestern Medical Group. Please help our cause by making a donation today.

We have a beautiful location (10 S. Riverside Plaza) overlooking the Chicago River with convenient and reasonable nearby parking. Rick Kogan is once again serving as the MC. We have wine and beer donations and will have a wide array of appetizers. There will be a live band and a professional actor reading a very clever one act play by Anton Chekov about smoking as well as a very funny local comedian, Caryn Bark. And a client will talk about what it meant to her to be able to receive cessation treatment thanks to the funds raised thus far.
So far, our auction items are fantastic: sports paraphanelia, jewelry, theater & restaurant packages, Wendella tickets, original art work, etc.
The bottom line is – it will be a very fun evening for a very good cause. We are the only event raising money specifically to help smokers quit in the City of Chicago! Please come and bring as many people with you as you can!
What’s harder than quitting? Doing it alone.
Quitting smoking is one of the hardest things many of us have ever done. If only it were as easy as just “saying no.” If only tobacco products weren’t so overwhelmingly addictive.
But they are, and quitting alone is extraordinarily hard for most people.
There are programs, treatments and medications that can help. But none of these are cheap and many smokers can’t afford the cost of a quality program that will help them become nonsmokers for good. That’s why we’re here.
