Goombay Bash

A party with meaning and the party of the summer!

It started with a few friends with entrepreneurial spirit who decided to make a difference in the fight against cancer. In 2001, we threw our first Goombay Bash under the disguise of a casual Caribbean-style festival. Since then, Goombay Bash has grown to become one of the largest and liveliest cancer research fundraising events in Chicago!

We host 1,000+ guests at Chicago‚Äôs Navy Pier at a tropical party where everyone wears Hawaiian shirts and leis while raising money for cancer research. All Proceeds Benefit Basic Science Cancer Research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.
