More than 675 guests joined the Hippocratic Cancer Research Foundation for its inaugural gala, “The Wings to Cure,” on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at the Hilton Chicago. Thanks to the generosity of many sponsors and supporters, the spectacular black-tie event raised over $950,000 to accelerate high-impact translational research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.

Established in November 2015, the mission of the Hippocratic Cancer Research Foundation (HCRF) is to discover, develop and implement effective new treatments for patients with cancer by supporting groundbreaking research. Eleni Bousis, Chair of HCRF’s Founding Board, welcomed guests and shared the personal experience that fueled her desire to “give researchers the ‘Wings to Cure.’”  Bousis thanked everyone present for their generous support. “When this devastating disease invaded my family, I saw first-hand what leading-edge research can do to change lives. Together, we can make these breakthroughs possible for more of our loved ones.”

“HCRF’s vision, drive and determination to support cancer research are creating important opportunities to translate scientific discoveries into leading-edge treatments for our patients,” said Leonidas Platanias, MD, PhD, Director of the Lurie Cancer Center and Director of HCRF’s Scientific Advisory Board. “Cancer can be defeated if physicians, researchers and philanthropists work as a team.” Dr. Platanias thanked Eleni Bousis for her “vision and dedication to improving the lives of patients and their families.”

Susanna Homan, Anna Davlantes and Lou Canellis served as emcees, and helped to welcome the gala’s many special guests. Following an elegant cocktail reception and dinner, guests danced the night away to the Dan Hayes Orchestra.
