Chicago Fair Trade GlobalFest 2013: Honoring Our African Partnerships

Join us for a wonderful evening of appetizers, Fair Trade wine, and a silent auction as we honor our African partnerships involved in the Fair Trade network. We will be presenting this year’s Chicago Fair Trade’s Changemaker Award.

This annual benefit gala highlights the growing consumers support for products that guarantee social benefits to workers and save the environment. Globalfest Africa will feature the stories of fair trade producers from Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda and the products they supply to us everyday, from artisan products to chocolate to gold and wine! Hear their stories while enjoying fair trade wine and cocktails, appetizers and a silent auction.

Fair trade is a world-wide movement aimed toward reducing poverty by providing farmers and artisans in developing countries a fair wage for their work. Chicago Fair Trade brought global recognition to Chicago by working to achieve fair trade town status in May, 2011. Chicago is the second largest fair trade city in North America.
