For nearly 20 years, John and Mary Adolf (long-time friends of Tom and Julie Schaffner) have hosted an Oktoberfest cook-out at their home in a Chicago suburb in which they invite approximately 150 of their closest friends, neighbors, co-workers and relatives. Guests are asked to make a donation to the designated charitable organization for that year’s event.

For the past two years, the Adolfs have designated the Julie W. Schaffner Ovarian Cancer Fund as the recipient of funds raised by their Oktoberfest. We are pleased to announce that this year’s event, which will be held on  October 17, 2015, will again be the recipient of funds raised at Oktoberfest.
