Seven hundred of Chicago’s business and civic leaders gathered at the Hilton Chicago recently for the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation’s 21st Annual Dinner. The event raised $490,000 to benefit the foundation’s two-pronged mission of funding gastrointestinal (GI) cancer research, and advancing real estate education.
The Foundation celebrated GI cancer survivors who have benefitted from the Foundation’s $1.5-million commitment to fund the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation GI Cancer OncoSET program and other research initiatives at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at Northwestern University. The OncoSET delivers personalized cancer treatments to patients with very limited options.
On the real estate education side, the Eisenberg Foundation offers 15 education programs, has impacted thousands of students, and invested nearly $500,000 in scholarships and programming to advance the careers of young real estate talent. This year’s student scholarship winners were recognized and congratulated by the Foundation’s first-ever scholarship recipient 19 years ago.
