New York, NY (PRWEB) December 22, 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 – will once again return to South Florida for its Annual Fashion Luncheon. Now in its 10th year, the LRF Fashion Luncheon has become a staple in the Boca Raton philanthropic community, raising a total of more than $1.2 million in support of the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s mission to eradicate lymphoma and serve those touched by this disease.
The special 10th Anniversary celebration will be hosted once again at the beautiful St. Andrews Country Club on Monday, February 8, 2016. Neiman Marcus Boca Raton will be providing a Spring 2016 fashion presentation and on-site pop up boutiques from Dior Beauty and Alexis Bittar, both of whom will be donating a portion of proceeds in support of LRF's mission.
“We could not be more thrilled to partner with the Lymphoma Research Foundation for its 10th Annual Luncheon,” said Leslie Johasky, Vice President/General Manager of Neiman Marcus Boca Raton. “This event has such a wonderful reputation in the South Florida community, and Neiman Marcus Boca Raton is proud to be involved with such a wonderful day for such a good cause.”
Each year, more than 5,000 Floridians are diagnosed with lymphoma – the most common form of blood cancer. Last year’s luncheon raised more than $140,000 in support of the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s efforts to eradicate lymphoma and serve those touched by the disease.
“Over the past decade, the South Florida community has made its commitment to the lymphoma community felt each and every year,” said Gladys Cook, founding co-chair of the luncheon. “This year’s anniversary luncheon will be a celebration, not only of how far we’ve come, but of our continued dedication to the life-saving research supported by the Lymphoma Research Foundation.”
Judy Bronsteen, Gladys Cook, Toby Cooperman, Elisabeth Dalfen, Joan Hauser, and Mitzi Oreman will serve as the distinguished co-chairs of the luncheon. Event attendees will be treated to a welcome reception, auction, raffle prizes and a keynote presentation from Stephen D. Nimer, MD, of the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
All those interested are invited to attend the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s South Florida Fashion Luncheon, which begins at 10:30 am at St. Andrews Country Club. Individual tickets for the luncheon start at $125 each.
