Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Red & White Ball

More than 600 attendees came out to the Marriott Downtown to support the cause.

The Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society hosted its 3rd Annual Red & White Ball held at the Marriott Downtown in Center City Saturday, March 5th. Guests enjoyed a cocktail party with light bites while bidding on exciting silent auction prizes including trips, gift certificates and sports memorabilia. There was also a raffle for a Mercedes-Benz generously donated by local Mercedes-Benz dealers. Some 1,200 raffle tickets at $100 a pop were sold, and one lucky anonymous winner is getting ready to drive an all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC (formerly GLK) SUV. Proceeds from the evening topped $575,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
