More chances to get to know you…
Sweet Ali’s has always loved introducing our products to the community. It is a reason we do regular tastings at our wholesale partners as well as other community events. But we do it for more than introducing us to you, we do it so you can introduce yourself to us. We love getting to know our customers, why you are gluten free, how you manage it, where you like to eat, what you like to eat, what do you do on the weekends, who is in your family and so much more. Knowing you makes us a better bakery, a better community leader, a better gluten free advocate and a better place to work.
In the next couple of months, we have quite a few events. Some are gluten free and others are not. Some we have attended in the past and others are brand new. But all are a chance to get to meet and know you. We hope we will see you at one (or all!) of them.
Evening in Bloom is the official preview benefit of the Chicago Flower & Garden Show. The gala takes place the night before the Chicago Flower and Garden Show debuts and benefits local charities through ticket proceeds. Sweet Ali’s is honored to be part of the small group of food purveyors that will be offering dessert during this fabulous event. March 11th, 6pm, Navy Pier http://chicagoflower.com/charity-event/
