Refreshments and entertainment will follow. All proceeds from this first-time event will benefit the Parkview Cancer Institute in care of the Parkview Foundation.

Saturday afternoon, the Snider Biomedical Charity Council is hosting its first Biomedical Bash. From 1-5 p.m. at the Arlington Park Clubhouse, 4630 W.
