Annual Spring Luncheon

May 11, 2021 | 11:00 am

The Woman’s Board of Rush University Medical Center postponed the 26th Annual Spring Luncheon, originally scheduled for Thursday, April 16, 2020. Under the fabulous leadership of Katie Frekko and Brooke Kuehnle, The Woman’s Board plans to hold this event next spring. Please mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 11, 2021, and stay tuned for more information!

While the event did not occur as planned, we are so appreciative of those individuals who supported our fundraising efforts. Together we have raised almost $100,000 for The Woman’s Board Transformation Fund for the Rush University Cancer Center, through both contributions and the conversion of ticket purchases to contributions. Thank you for your generosity!

For more information on tickets and sponsorship, or if you have any questions regarding this wonderful event, please call The Woman’s Board office at (312) 942-6513 or email
