1. More than 700 attendees from Greater Philadelphia will gather for the Sixth Annual Red & White Ball on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown Hotel to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The night includes a cocktail reception, a formal
sit-down dinner, incredible silent and live auctions, and entertainment from one of Philadelphia’s best bands. The event also boasts a car raffle featuring a brand new 2019 Audi Q5 2.0 TFSI® Quattro® S Tronic® SUV (MSRP: $41,900). The vehicle
was generously donated which means LLS received 100% of the ticket sales. The winner of the vehicle will be announced the night of the Red & White Ball. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® (LLS) hosted its annual Patron Party on Monday, February 4, 2019 at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar (555 East Lancaster Avenue) in Radnor Township. The event was held to thank their Sixth Annual Red & White Ball high level sponsors and donors. Sponsors included Burlington Stores; Suvoda; Penn Medicine; Abramson Cancer Center, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital; and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center.
