Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 5th Annual Red and White Gala
Last last month the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 5th Annual Red and White Gala took place at The Marriott Downtown drawing nearly 700 guests, and selling out one of the most talked about events of the season.

The event raises money for breakthrough therapies and patient services funded by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® (LLS). The event also boasted an Audi car raffle featuring the all-new a 2018 Audi A4 Sedan Quarto (MRSP: $43,595). The vehicle was generously donated, and LLS received 100 percent of the ticket sales.
The evening began with a cocktail party while guests checked out silent auction items ranging from trips, to experiences to sports outings. Afterwards guests headed into the ballroom for dinner and dancing, after a tribute honoring Wawa and their commitment to supporting LLS’s mission.
