Every attendee will receive a gift bag. We will also have: 

*Silent Auction – 3 sets of Cubs tickets

*Raffle Baskets – Raffle tickets are 2 for $10 or 5 for $20

*50/50 Raffle –  At the end of the event, the money will be counted and 50% of the money collected will go to the winning ticket holder and 50% will go to the NPF

*Sports Memorabilia – Bid on autographed jerseys, photos, balls, caps

Ask your friends, family members and neighbors to attend with you. Let’s grow this event! If each of you invites one person and they attend, we have doubled our attendance. 

If pancreatic disease is the storm, then we are the warriors that are fighting that storm. Your donation means you are helping to fight the storm Rob can no longer fight!

Remembering Rob - 2019

In December 2012, Rob Ericson became ill with pancreatitis and fought for his life for six weeks. He died January 2013 battling Acute Pancreatitis. 

"Yesterday, my pancreas whispered in my ear, 'You're not strong enough to withstand the storm.' 

Today, I whispered in my pancreas' ear, 'I am the storm!'"

"I continue to fight for Rob and everyone with pancreas disease." - Ruth Ericson, Mother

The National Pancreas Foundation provides hope for those suffering from pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer through funding cutting edge research, advocating for new and better therapies, and providing support and education for patients, caregivers, and health care professionals. 

To fulfill its mission, the NPF raises and manages a charitable foundation from which grants are made directly to researchers seeking to resolve the challenging medical problems of pancreatic diseases. It is the only foundation dedicated to patients who are suffering from all forms of pancreas disease. 

Thank you for your support.
