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 over 250 members of South Florida’s philanthropic community at its 10th anniversary Fashion Luncheon on Monday, February 8, 2016. The special anniversary event brought in over $125,000 in support of LRF’s mission of eradicating lymphoma and serving those touched by the disease.
The event, hosted once again at the beautiful St. Andrews Country Club featured a Spring 2016 fashion presentation by Neiman Marcus Boca Raton and on-site pop up boutiques from Dior Beauty and Alexis Bittar, both of whom donated a portion of proceeds in support of LRF's mission. With the day’s generous donations, the 10 year fundraising impact for the Annual Fashion Luncheon now totals more than $1.3 million in donations toward LRF’s innovative research portfolio.
“The entire Neiman Marcus Boca Raton team is proud of what our two organizations have been able to accomplish today,” said Lauren Johnson, Public Relations Manager of Neiman Marcus Boca Raton. “Today is a celebration of the impact on research that we’re able to make when two organizations such as Neiman Marcus and LRF partner together for such a wonderful event.”
“Today’s event was a fitting tribute to what we’ve been able to achieve at this luncheon over the last ten years,” said Judy Bronsteen, founding co-chair of the luncheon. “The funds raised here today represent not only how far this event has come, but also the commitment of the South Florida community to work with LRF to realize a future without lymphoma.”
Attendees were also treated to a welcome reception, auction, raffle prizes and a keynote presentation from Stephen D. Nimer, MD, of the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.This year’s event was co-chaired by Judy Bronsteen, Gladys Cook, Toby Cooperman, Elisabeth Dalfen, Joan Hauser, and Mitzi Oreman.
