Founded in 1949,The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission is to
cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.Headquartered in New York,the society is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services.

So...if your between the age of 21-40ish and in the Philadelphia/Southern NJ area, be sure to come out to this black tie event, show your support for a great cause and "enjoy all the fun of a wedding reception without any of the hassle". Contests include the Ugliest Dress and Tackiest Tux Contest so make sure to dress "not to impress" for those prizes. Live Music will be provided by The Zone and Frederick Hart Entertainment will be on the "1 and 2's" (sidebar... I couldn't resist. If you know Fred, you know he is FAR from even being associated with the 1 & 2's. Fred is certainly oneof the most sophisticated and talented dj's in the area). Admission is $85 and includes admission to the Bridesmaids' Ball, open bar, entertainment and hors d'oeuvres.
Good Food, Great Cause and a reason to get dressed up...sounds good to me!
