38 In The News Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation events are promoted to an audience of over 11,000 people and garner over 7.5 M media impressions annually through social media, print publications and TV airtime. 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 foundation's largest gift in its history — $1.5 million to fund the foundation's OncoSET program at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at Northwestern University. The research program provides a more personalized medicine option for cancer patients 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.
