2024 Blue Jean Ball

Save the date for the 19th Blue Jean Ball, happening on Saturday, September 28 at Pier 290 in Williams Bay, Wisconsin.

This fundraiser supports the Foundation’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.

  • Silent auction and raffles
  • Appetizers, buffet dinner, and deserts
  • Meet the Forbeck Scholars
  • More details to come

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