Illuminight 2019
Savor an Evening with Local Female Foodies and Support Local Women Battling Breast Cancer

Illuminight is an inspirational evening featuring local female chefs and food entrepreneurs coming together to support The Firefly Sisterhood through their culinary talents. Enjoy hand-crafted signature cuisine dishes while supporting and important local organization.
The Firefly Sisterhood exists to bring light to the emotional journey of breast cancer. As a local non-profit organization, The Firefly Sisterhood makes brilliant, one-to-one, highly personalized connections between women recently diagnosed with breast cancer and inspirational survivors (Guides).
“Sure, I had some dark moments – which only another woman who fought cancer would understand—but I knew I could reach out to my Firefly Guide at any time for support and encouragement.” – Firefly Program Participant
Every woman facing breast cancer who reaches out to Firefly receives free, individualized attention, regardless of her health system or her diagnosis, age, and/or life experience. As for the Firefly Guides, all are breast cancer survivors who have gone through a screening process that includes a criminal background check, personal interview and peer-mentor training.

“When I found Firefly . . . it was GOING to be the way for me to give back and turn the negative into a positive. Through supporting a newly diagnosed woman, I am given the wonderful opportunity to help her, and unbeknownst to her, she’s given me the opportunity to process my own journey through diagnosis and treatment, which is something I didn’t know I needed until I experienced it.” -Firefly Guide
Support The Firefly Sisterhood at its signature event, Illuminight. Each featured chef is an accomplished woman with a strong influence in the thriving local restaurant or catering industry scene in the Twin Cities and share a commitment to helping to
