Annual Spring Luncheon

May 11, 2021 | 11:00 am

The Woman’s Board of Rush University Medical Center’s 26th Annual Spring Luncheon, originally scheduled for Thursday, April 16, 2020, was postponed. Under the fabulous leadership of Katie Frekko and Brooke Kuehnle, The Woman’s Board plans to hold this event next spring. Please mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 11, 2021, and stay tuned for more information!

While the event did not occur as planned, we are so appreciative of those individuals who supported our fundraising efforts. Together we have raised almost $100,000 for The Woman’s Board Transformation Fund for the Rush University Cancer Center. Thank you for your generosity!

Special Thanks!

The Woman’s Board would like to thank our generous friends for their support.
