The theme of “I Will Survive” uplifted more than 600 guests at the November 10 event, held at Navy Pier. More than $3.5 million was raised to benefit high-impact translational research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. Gala cochairs Alex and Danielle Samoylovich, together with HCRF’s founding chair, Eleni Bousis, welcomed guests and shared their mission to create hope and a bright future for those affected by cancer. Their support was echoed by the evening’s emcees: NBC-5 entertainment reporter LeeAnn Trotter and WFLD-TV sports anchor Lou Canellis.
