Leukemia Ball Raises $3 Million

WHOA! What a monster night of giving. It was incredible to see the best of our community at work. Supporters of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society showed up Saturday night ready to give. They exceeded our expectations helping raise more than $3 million dollars to fund the fight against blood cancer.
A touching part of the night.. when Redskins Hall of Famer Bobby Mitchell was honored and revealed he just lost his best friend to the disease. I think there were tears in just about everybody’s eyes. We also met the sweet patient ambassadors Logan, Tyler and Brianna. These children remind us there is hope for a cure.. not someday but today.
Special shout out to my co-emcees Comcast SportsNet’s Julie Donaldson, FOX5′s Sarah Simmons and ABC7′s Eileen Whelan. It was an honor to share the stage with such grounded and generous women in our biz. It was pretty cool to see some of our peacock family in the house too– thanks Dianna and Vance!
Comedian Ryan Hamilton was very funny… and what can I say about Huey Lewis and the News. It was obvious with the standing room– the heart of rock’n'roll had arrived at the Washington Convention Center that night. If you came out to support or have ever made a donation to LLS… thank you.

The Blues Help Beat Blood Cancer

Wow. That’s the best way to put it. My first experience at the Leukemia Ball is one I surely won’t forget. This is such a gorgeous event from the fabulous crowd, the detailed decor.. the moment you walk in the feeling is grand.

This year I was honored to quad-emcee with three of my girlfriends from the other three stations. It was quite the production.. we even had a full rehearsal earlier in the day. It paid off because the event was a complete success. The Leukemia  & Lymphoma Society’s National Capital Chapter surpassed it’s goal of $90,000 raising $2.7 Million dollars for blood cancer research. How awesome is that!

Tammy Darvish was honored with a big award for all that she has done in this fight. She was so dynamic on stage and really inspired the crowd.

Dana Carvey was hilarious… imitating all the recent Presidents and weaving political humor into his performance. He helped us give away 2 Mercedes and then  Jim Belushi and his band hit the stage and kept the party rockin’ in to the night! Thank you to all who came out to support LLS and those fighting this battle everday!
