The storied Annual Ball is the GI Research Foundation’s premier fundraising event.
On Saturday, May 1st, 2021, the GI Research Foundation Diamond Anniversary Ball celebrated 60 brilliant years with a high energy tribute to GIRF’s best and brightest. In a virtual event like no other, the Foundation raised more than $1.3 million for research at the University of Chicago Medicine Digestive Diseases Center.
The GI Research Foundation honored grande dame Beatrice “Bee” G. Crain of the Crain-Maling Foundation with the inaugural Joseph B. Kirsner Award for her lifelong commitment to GIRF and presented the first-ever Partners in Science Award to longtime GIRF champions Sy and Nancy Taxman.
