The Barnes Foundation Announces “Cocktails for a Cause”

The Barnes Foundation is excited to announce our fourth annual signature fundraising event,
“Cocktails for a Cause.” Proceeds from this event will benefit The Unive­rsity of Chicago Medicine
Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox.  

“The Barnes Foundation is passionate about supporting the new Comprehensive Cancer Center,”
said Barnes Foundation President Amy Gollan. “This facility will be able to connect people right
in our own community with cutting-edge technology and treatment that is typically only available
in a big city. Having witnessed a close family member’s battle with cancer, I know how grueling
and stressful traveling to receive treatments can be. This new state-of-the-art center will make
cancer treatment an easier and more positive experience.”  


Cocktails for a Cause will be held at CD & Me in Frankfort on Friday, September 28 from 6 to 10 p.m.

Event tickets are $25, which includes cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and one entry into a raffle for $1,000
(winner need not be present to win). The event will also include live music, a DJ, a raffle and a
silent auction. Tickets can be purchased at the door and are also available online now at If you can’t attend the event but would still like to make a donation,
you can do so on our website. 

Here’s just a sampling of the prizes that will be up for grabs on the silent auction:

  • A one-night stay at the Trump Hotel Chicago and a $250 hotel gift card (two available)
  • A two-night stay at the Omni Chicago Hotel with breakfast for two
  • A “Discovery Flight” lesson from Windy City Flyers
  • A Michael Kors watch
  • A baseball autographed by Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios

    great prizes available on the silent auction and raffle. If you haven’t already, head over to our
