Leukemia Ball Happens This Saturday!
2014 Leukemia Ball senior co-chair Candace Duncan says to expect nearly 2,000 area business leaders at the 27th Annual Leukemia Ball, presented by PhRMA, on Saturday, March 22 (that’s Candace with last year’s comedian, Jim Belushi). The event raises money for innovative life-saving research and patient programs funded by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Huey Lewis and the News and comedian Ryan Hamilton bring their talents to the 2014 shindig: “Imagine Someday Is Today.” LLS’s mission is to cure blood cancers and help patients and their families. The Ball is one of the most anticipated non-political black-ties of the year. Candace, retired managing partner of KPMG’s Metropolitan Area, has been working hard with co-chair, Dan Waetjen, president of BB&T Bank Group, to make this year’s event a success. Raffle prize: a Mercedes-Benz! You can register for the event here.
