This year marks the 43rd year for the Annual Lou Malnati's Cancer Research Benefit and we look forward to another successful year of raising funds for cancer research and education programs.
Last year more than $215,000 was raised at the 42nd annual event, and over the past 10 years nearly $3 million has been donated to cancer research and treatment programs at the Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago's Gilda's Club and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.
This year's event will take place on Saturday, October 5th at The Meadows Club where we will travel back to the 1980s for an evening of fundraising and dancing, with music provided by Skyline, a world-class six-piece Chicago band.
Donations to the cancer research fund can be made at any Lou Malnati's pizzeria or online at www.lmbc.org. Tickets are also available for purchase online if you would like to join us for the totally 80s party!
