On December 13, leadership from The H Foundation presented a check to the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University for cancer research following its 21st Annual Goombay Bash fundraiser in August. More than $900,000 was raised at this year's event.

The H Foundation is a vital partner in Northwestern’s mission of finding a cure for cancer. Since 2001, it has raised over $12 million for innovative basic science cancer research that will lead to important clinical advances in patient care. Since 2015, Feinberg scientists have leveraged support from The H Foundation into more than $250 million in private and government grants for cancer research.
