31st Annual Leukemia Ball
Saturday, March 10, 2018

General Reception begins at 6:30 pm

The Leukemia Ball has reigned as one of Greater Washington, D.C.’s largest, non-political black tie events, bringing together business, philanthropic and community leaders from across the metro area for the fight against blood cancer. Together these leaders have raised nearly $60 million for the National Capital Area Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society since it began in 1988.

Celebrating more than three decades, the Leukemia Ball will return to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Saturday, March 10, 2018. The annual event will feature entertainment by comedian Jeff Foxworthy and music by Phil Vassar. Featuring a world-class silent auction with travel packages, and a chance to win one of two Mercedes prizes, the ball raises funds for life-saving cancer research and patient programs provided by LLS.
