Goombay Bash

I’m sure you are asking what is a Goombay Bash!  A Caribbean-themed event where you wear shorts, sandals, and a lei, all while raising money for cancer research. Founder & President of the H Foundation, John Rot, (Horton Electric Supply) has led the foundation for the last 12 years.  It’s a party with meaning but it is also the party of the summer!! It’s fun!!

The Goombay Bash is its largest fund raising event, where more than 1,000 people gathered at the Navy Pier in Downtown Chicago and raised more than $500,000.

All money raised goes directly to basic science cancer research at the Robert H Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at Northwestern University. 

In 12 years, The H Foundation has raised more than $4.5 million and helped raise another $40 million for cancer research funds and grants.

Rick Seidman & Todd Tuchfarber, from Quoizel, attended the bash along with many of their peers from the lighting industry.
