Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Virtual Leukemia Ball: Music for the Mission on June 26, 2021. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, donors, and guests, we raised over $1.6 million for our mission – bringing the cumulative Leukemia Ball total to over $68 million since 1988. All funds raised have advanced the LLS mission and fueled its investment in cures and access for blood cancer patients. On behalf of patients and their families we serve, thank you for your support of this year’s event.

We look forward to celebrating in person with all sponsors and guests at the 35th Annual Leukemia Ball on March 5, 2022! Stay tuned for details.


Over the last three decades, the Leukemia Ball has reigned as one of Greater Washington, D.C.’s largest, non-political black tie events. The Ball has raised over $68 million for the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society since it began in 1988. Having grown from 375 guests to more than 2,000, the Leukemia Ball presents star-studded entertainment that in past years has included Jerry Seinfeld, Smokey Robinson, Jay Leno, Hootie & The Blowfish, Foreigner, Huey Lewis & The News, Diana Ross, Barenaked Ladies, Jim Gaffigan, Andy Grammer, O.A.R. and Kathleen Madigan. The 2021 Virtual Leukemia Ball featured entertainment by Sheryl Crow and Damien Escobar.
