Cruisin’ for a Cure

Join the Rolfe Foundation’s Young Professionals Board and a bevy of Chicago’s brightest rising stars for an evening excursion on Lake Michigan supporting the cause of early detection research.  Dust off your dance shoes, savor a craft cocktail (or two), and commemorate the critical work of the Rolfe Foundation as our live band rocks the boat and fireworks flood the sky.
