Please join us for the GI Research Foundation’s 59th Annual Ball on our NEW date – October 31, 2020.

The University of Chicago Medicine Digestive Diseases Center is internationally recognized for groundbreaking research and transformative patient care. For more than half a century, the GI Research Foundation has supported their mission. The Ball brings together 600 patients, family, friends, physicians and corporate partners. All Ball proceeds support the physician scientists who prevent, treat, and cure digestive diseases. Last year, the Ball raised a record-breaking $1.6 million. For more information, please contact us at info@girf.org or 312-332-1350.
