FLAVORS OF WISCONSIN
Flavors is a culinary experience that goes beyond the traditional gala providing guests with the unique experience of having a top local chef prepare a multi-course dinner tableside. The evening showcases the signature dishes of our culinary experts and takes you beyond the usual restaurant fare. Unleash your inner “foodie” and experience a distinct evening of dining while helping to fund the research, education, and advocacy efforts of the American Liver Foundation.
Join us for a night that you won’t soon forget all while helping to improve the lives of the 30 million people in the United States living with liver disease.
Good afternoon friends of ALF,
Thank you for your support of our 2020 Flavors of Wisconsin culinary gala. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak in the US and its presence in Wisconsin, we have decided to postpone Flavors of Wisconsin to a date yet to be determined.
In addition to utilizing guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), this decision was reached after consulting with the American Liver Foundation’s national leadership, our Division Board of Directors, Division Medical Advisory Committee and Presenting Sponsors. As a voluntary health organization, we are aware of the severity of the disease and the potential threat it poses to our friends, colleagues, patients with liver disease and their families as well as those with other underlying health concerns.
All Flavors of Wisconsin tickets and sponsorships purchased to date will be honored and valid at the event on TBD. The event format will remain the same. Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time. We look forward to seeing you later in the year. Please be safe and stay well.

Meet our 2020 National Flavors LIVEr Champion
Molly was born December 30, 2009; she was a healthy baby. We were thrilled our gorgeous baby girl had finally arrived. Twenty-four hours after she was born, jaundice set in and our happiness turned to fear. While jaundice is fairly normal in newborns, Molly’s jaundice was serious and life-threatening. Overnight, we were thrown from a happy euphoria into a deep despair. Over the course of the next five weeks, Molly underwent a series of blood draws, scans and diagnostic testing. As each day passed, her skin turned more yellow, she stopped gaining weight and became very agitated. No one can imagine the fear that was living inside us.
After weeks of tests, we finally received a diagnosis… Biliary Atresia.
