On Saturday, March 23rd, more than 2,000 area business leaders gathered at the 26th annual Leukemia Ball to raise money for innovative, life-saving cancer research and patient programs funded by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Dana Carvey and Jim Belushi & the Sacred Hearts band, brought their talents back to D.C. for the 2013 event – dubbed Saturday Night Blues.
Both of these Saturday Night Live alumni performed at the Leukemia Ball in the past, although this is the first time they will be at the event together. Known for his impressions of George H.W. Bush, and SNL characters Garth and the Church Lady, Carvey headlined the event in 1999 and entertained guests with his unique stand-up routine in 2013. For the past seven years, Belushi and the Sacred Hearts have performed their signature blues and soul sound and undoubtedly had the crowd on their feet.
