Following the meeting, is the Elekta Halloween Charity Bash. The first vendor-sponsored charity event of its kind, all donations will go directly to All Are Our Heroes (www.allareourheroes.com), a song project benefiting Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society. Featuring a DJ, dancing and more, the party will be held at Union Station Chicago from 7:30 - 11:30 p.m. Tickets are required for entry and available for $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

"Elekta is committed to continuing its 18-year tradition of thanking our customers - and this year will give all of us a chance to celebrate with a purpose," said Jay Hoey president and CEO of Elekta North America. "Since the party is on Halloween, costumes are encouraged and everyone should expect the same spirit of fun, camaraderie and entertainment they've grown accustomed to in years past."
