Goombay Bash

The H Foundation and Goombay Bash were created over a cocktail called the Goombay Smash. 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!

Sip. Smash. Cure.

Have a good time AND support The H Foundation simply by ordering a Goombay Smash at one of your favorite restaurants! Each year during the month of July participating restaurants compete for “bragging rights” by creating their very own version of the Goombay Smash. For every Goombay Smash that is purchased, a portion of the amount paid will go back to The H Foundation!

Lemonade for Cancer

Lemonade for Cancer was inspired by the story of Evan and Sam. After losing their grandfather to terminal cancer, the two brothers decided to open a lemonade stand in his honor and donate all the money they earned to cancer research. They wanted to help find a cure for the people that do have cancer, they said. Anyone at any age can make a difference in the fight against cancer. Get involved and create a lemonade stand to support cancer research!
