Red & White Ball 2017
The Leukemia Society’s Red & White Ball has quickly grown to be one of Philadelphia’s premier social events.
The lively, black-tie gala offered a sit-down-dinner, entertainment from one of Philadelphia’s best bands, and silent and live auctions.
Their auctions feature an array of spectacular items that include sports memorabilia, art, jewelry, gourmet foods, travel packages, and so much more. The Red & White Ball, held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown Hotel, was expected to raise more than $650,000.
For 2017, the event raffle was for a beautiful, brand new, Mercedes-Benz GLC300 4MATIC SUV. 100% of the ticket sales will go directly towards The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. In the last three years, the Ball has raised nearly $1.5 million for the LLS.
This years presenting sponsor, Jazz Pharmaceuticals, was honored with the Diamond Award for their contribution in the fight against blood cancers. After a few presentations during dinner, and the announcement of who won that beautiful GLC300, the guests enjoyed cocktails and dancing for the rest of the evening.
The Red & White Ball for 2018 will once again be held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown Hotel, on March, 24th. The 2018 Presenting Sponsor will be Wawa.
