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 return to the picturesque Mayfair Farms in West Orange, New Jersey for its Seventh Annual Ace Lymphoma Luncheon on June 13, 2016. Since 2010, the event has raised over $600,000 for the Foundation.
Saks Fifth Avenue at the Mall at Short Hills, Daniella Ortiz Design of Palm Beach, Haverhill Fine Jewelry, Irina G, Jodi Rose Originals, Mikal Designs and Tiffany's Trinkets will participate as this year’s luxury partners, providing exclusive shopping boutiques to event attendees. Hosted at the historic Georgian mansion situated on 14 acres of rolling lawns, gardens, and landscapes overlooking West Orange, the Ace Luncheon program is set to feature a raffle, auctions, and a special afternoon card party. Sponsorships are still available, and individual tickets can be purchased starting at $125.
"Saks Fifth Avenue at The Mall at Short Hills is proud to partner with the Lymphoma Research Foundation for its Seventh Annual Ace Lymphoma Luncheon,” said Kristi Brink, Vice President, General Manager of Saks Fifth Avenue Short Hills. “We are excited to feature makeover consultations from Guerlain Beauty to help raise awareness and funds for this very worthy fundraising event. We are always looking for ways to give back to our local community, and with nearly 2,500 people diagnosed with lymphoma each year in New Jersey, this is a very important cause for us.”
Vendors will once again donate a portion of the afternoon’s proceeds to the Lymphoma Research Foundation in support of its mission of eradicating lymphoma and serving those touched by the disease. One of the nation’s leading lymphoma experts, Morton Coleman, MD, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medicine, will deliver a keynote presentation on the future of lymphoma research and the impact of the funds raised at the afternoon’s events.
“Year after year, we are continually inspired by the support the New Jersey community shows on behalf of the Lymphoma Research Foundation and its mission of eradicating lymphoma and serving those touched by this disease,” said Meghan Gutierrez, LRF Chief Executive Officer. “Through these luncheons, LRF is able to not only raise awareness of this disease but also raise critical funds to support our innovative research programs to advance the forefront of research."
This year’s Ace Luncheon will be co-chaired by Gladys Cook, Toby Cooperman, Rellye Corwin, Vivian Friedman, Francine Oberst and Dr. Marcia Robbins-Wilf.
