Winner of 2014 Deerfield High School, School Chest


The Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation has been selected to be the beneficiary of Deerfield High School’s annual student-led charity drive, School Chest.

An astonishing undertaking, School Chest is a charity fundraising effort organized and run completely by Deerfield students. Every year, following an exhaustive application process, the students of Deerfield partner with a local charity and pledge to undertake a massive fundraising campaign on their behalf. In years past, School Chest has raised as much as $130,000 dollars in the name of their chosen charity!

The Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation could not be more honored to be teaming with the hard-working students and staff of Deerfield High School, whose dedication is a continual inspiration - and we would love it if you would join us in supporting their efforts.

The students have put together a full calendar of fundraising events in the month of December, and have asked us to invite our dearest friends (that’s you!) to join us in attending their annual School Chest Winter Gala at the Deerfield Hyatt. 

The School Chest Winter Gala is a joyous night of dinner, desert, raffles, auctions and live entertainment courtesy of the DHS students. It is a wonderful opportunity for the Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation and its supporters to applaud the Deerfield students’ work, and share our message with a whole new community.  

So please join us, and help us welcome the Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation’s newest 1,600 enthusiastic, young fundraisers!
