IMPACT365 teamed up with Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation to Speak Out For A Cure! The evening’s speakeasy theme perfectly complimented the Art Deco interior of The Montgomery Club. The swanky evening began with a walk down the red carpet, premium cocktails, and passed hors d’oeuvres.
The space was bustling with activity, including a “spin to win” wine wheel that featured over 100 premium bottles of wine. High stakes raffles allowed the guests a chance to win an in-home party catered by Gibsons, front row Chicago Cubs tickets, and a brand new iPhone 7. A live performance by pianist John Jones in the center of the room provided further entertainment, which had guests singing along to hit songs all night. Attendees were impressed by the amazing selection of items available at the silent auction and hit the blackjack and craps tables with the goal of scoring a prize from the casino raffle, which included a $500 gift card to Abt. Former NBA Basketball Player Shawn Marion won the Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament and received trip to Caesars Palace Las Vegas with roundtrip airfare. Guests enjoyed sushi, crab legs, tenderloin, and other premium offerings while sipping on craft cocktails from West Loop’s newest restaurant, Bad Hunter.
Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation was founded in an effort to raise awareness and discover a method of early detection for pancreatic cancer, which has the highest mortality rate among cancers. To date, Rolfe has raised over $6 million in funding for pancreatic cancer research at Johns Hopkins and University of Chicago.
