The featured bags from preeminent retailers, upscale boutiques and private collections are one of the many highlights of the afternoon. LSCRF has been a proud advocate of breast cancer research in Chicago for the past 31 years. Since its inception in 1985, LSCRF has raised over $31 million toward advancing the understanding, education, and importance of early detection of breast cancer. Proceeds from the Luncheon will support innovative contributions to breast cancer research, fellowships and educational programs at Northwestern Medicine and the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. Last year’s 30th anniversary Luncheon attracted more than 1,000 attendees and raised over $1.1 million for breast cancer research and educational programs. This year’s benefit is looking to be equally successful and is bound to be an exciting afternoon filled with food, fun, and fantastic fundraising!
