Fall Benefit

Friday, Sep 6, 2019 - 6:00pm to 11:00pm

The Woman's Board of Rush University Medical Center thanks you for supporting and attending this year's Fall Benefit, Bright Futures, on Friday, September 6, 2019, at Theater on the Lake. 

The party drew more than 450 Chicago-area supporters and featured a cocktail buffet along with live musical entertainment from The Bob Hardwick Sound, based in New York City, led by Bob Hardwick.  The event was chaired by Woman’s Board members Colby Gaines of Chicago, Susie Healey of Wilmette and Buffy Maier of Winnetka.

This year, the Woman's Board raised funds to support the Medical Center's education, research and community service programs including our 2019 principal project, the Rush Community Service Initiative Program, known as RCSIP.
