31 For the past 20 years, Heartland Real Estate Business has been proud to support the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation Since its inception, we have been honored to sponsor the Foundation's Annual Dinner and support its mission to find a cure for gastrointestinal cancer. CHICAGO — The Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation's 19th annual dinner drew 750 guests and raised over $550,000 to benefit the foundation's two-pronged mission of funding gastrointestinal cancer research and advancing real estate education. The event took place at the Hilton Chicago on Sept. 26. The 2017 scholars include Amanda Doster and James Alex Collins of Indiana University, Ines Andrade Gruest and Logan Walker of the University of Illinois, Justin Hucek of DePaul University and Ashley Pollock of Roosevelt University. Each student will work hand- in-hand with real estate innovators for six months and receive a $5,000 scholarship. Also unveiled at the event were details of the foun- dation's largest gift in its history — $1.5 million to fund the foundation's OncoSET program at the Rob- ert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at North- western University. The research program provides a more personalized medicine option for cancer pa- tients by combining oncology with genomics. Steven Weinstock of Marcus & Millichap was the event's chair while Kevin Wolfberg of Schain, Banks, Kenny & Schwartz Ltd. was the vice-chair. Event chair Steven Weinstock speaks at the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation's 19th annual dinner, which was held on Sept. 26, 2017 at the Hilton Chicago.
