2023 Blue Jean Ball

Save the date for the 18th Blue Jean Ball, happening on Saturday, October 14 from 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM at Pier 290 in Williams Bay, Wisconsin.

This fundraiser supports WGFRF’s annual Scholar retreat held in Lake Geneva, WI twice a year. The goals of the Scholar Retreats are to host a collaborative meeting for junior scientists and senior oncologists to drive the future of cancer medicine in a “think tank” format, expedite current cancer research, initiate new and novel paths in science and bridge the gap between institutions and scientific specializations. The WGFRF format has proven to be a successful method inciting new research and collaborations across institutions.In addition to the two annual Scholar Retreats in Lake Geneva, we hold 8 focused cancer topic meetings a year funding participation for more than 750 oncology researchers. With almost 40 years under our belt, we truly have a history to be proud of.  Your support in attending, sponsoring and donating to our auction will help us continue the impactful work we do in cancer research.

  • Two-hour open bar plus one-hour Wine and spirits tasting curated by Terlato Wines and Artisan Spirits
  • Silent auction and raffles
  • Appetizers, buffet dinner, and deserts
  • Meet the Forbeck Scholars
  • Lake Geneva musicians, Kathy Fry and Ted Oliver, battle it out on dueling pianos

All proceeds from this event directly fund the fall scholar retreat, a cancer research meeting, held in the Lake Geneva area.
