Lymphoma Research Foundation Raises More than $140,000 at Annual Fashion Luncheon for Blood Cancer Research and Education
Date:2/18/2015

Boca Raton, Florida (PRWEB) February 18, 2015

The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) – the nation’s largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to funding innovative lymphoma research and serving the lymphoma community through a comprehensive series of education programs, outreach initiatives and patient services – hosted its Ninth Annual Luncheon in Boca Raton on Monday, February 2, 2015, raising over $140,000 for critical research programs and patient services. The event, which packed St. Andrews Country Club to capacity once again, treated attendees to an exclusive fashion show by Neiman Marcus Boca Raton, a pop up boutique and makeovers courtesy of Dior Beauty, and presentations from leading lymphoma expert Dr. Stephen D. Nimer, Director, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

“Year after year, we are continually impressed by the support the South Florida community shows to LRF through these luncheons,” said Gladys Cook, founding co-chair of the luncheon. “This year’s event illustrated once again that we can make a real difference in advancing lymphoma research and providing important educational resources to those affected by this blood cancer by supporting the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s mission.”

Neiman Marcus Boca Raton returned in 2015 as a partner to the South Florida Luncheon, helping to raise funds and awareness for the disease and the critical research programs supported by LRF.

“We could not be more thrilled to have been played a part in the success of this year’s fashion luncheon,” said Leslie Johasky, Vice President/General Manager of Neiman Marcus Boca Raton. “The amount of pride that Neiman Marcus Boca Raton can take as an organization in knowing that we helped support the lymphoma community here today is truly immeasurable.”

Each year, more than 5,000 Floridians are diagnosed with lymphoma – the most common form of blood cancer. The Luncheon has raised more than $1.2 million to-date in support of the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s mission to eradicate lymphoma and serve those touched by the disease.

This year’s event was co-chaired by Judy Bronsteen, Gladys Cook, Toby Cooperman, Elisabeth Dalfen, Joan Hauser, and Mitzi Oreman, and was anchored by a keynote presentation from Dr. Stephen D. Nimer, Director, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
