YPB Holiday Party

Give the Gift of Hope. A fabulous and festive occasion supporting the work of Rolfe Foundation researchers and fellows, the Young Professional Board’s Holiday Party is a can’t-miss showstopper.  Premier Chicago DJs power the night, as revelers indulge in delicious desserts, boutique beverages, and a dance floor that beckons late into the night. 

2016 Holiday Party:

This year marked the Rolfe Foundation Young Professional Board’s FIFTH OUTING of our annual Holiday Party celebration, and with your help we raised nearly $40,000 benefiting early detection pancreatic cancer research.  That makes the 2016 Holiday Party YPB’s most successful winter event ever!

Eight years ago, when YPB first started, we raised $3,000 in our first calendar year. In 2016, following the Holiday Party, we are just shy of $100,000 for the first time in our board’s existence.  With your help, it’s a milestone we are sure we can reach.

Continue the season of giving!
Help the Rolfe Young Professionals Board raise $100,000 in 2016!



YPB would like to acknowledge our dedicated supporters, our generous sponsors, the event chairs, and Underground Chicago, for their fifth year of event support.  All of you are the fuel that pushes us ever further down the path of early detection.  We can’t wait to Make Merry with you again in 2017!
