About the Leukemia Ball

The Ball began in 1988 as a way for the accounting industry to give back to the community. The event founders chose The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (formerly the Leukemia Society of America) as the beneficiary. In its first year, the Ball attracted 400 guests and raised $80,000.

As the event has grown over the past 21 years, it has enjoyed far-reaching support from every corner of the Metro region's influential business community. Since its inception, the Leukemia Ball has raised more than $34 million dollars. As this support has continued to grow so dramatically, so have the remarkable research results.
