Thank You!

Thank you to all those who participated in the 2020 Virtual Leukemia Ball! We enjoyed a special evening for our mission and raised crucial funds for patients and their families. Watch a recording of the event here.  We look forward to announcing the date for the 2021 Leukemia Ball in the coming months.


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 $65 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, and Andy Grammer. The 2019 Leukemia Ball featured entertainment by O.A.R. and Kathleen Madigan.
