for Blood Cancer Research




Palm Beach, FL - The Palm Beach Area Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Annual Gala took place on Saturday, January 21, 2012 at The Mar-a-Lago Club, Palm Beach.  The event began with a cocktail reception taking place around the pool where guests were treated to sumptuous hors d’oeuvres and Circus performances. The more than 400 guests also mingled in the white and gold ballroom while bidding on an array of fantastic silent auction items.

After cocktails, guests entered the ballroom, which was transformed by Sutra International into a Circus “Big Top”. The event’s Master of Ceremonies, Tim Byrd, welcomed everyone and then introduced the event’s presenting sponsor, Jason Brian of  The Gala Chairmen, Geri and Frank Morrow, were then introduced by LLS Board President, Dr. Robert Burke,  and thanked all in attendance for their support.

Also recognized this evening were the Annual Gala’s International Chair, Hermé de Wyman Miro, Honorary Chairwoman, Ari Rifkin, Honorary Chairman, Patrick Park, Chairman Emeritus, Elizabeth Fago and Host Gala Chairs, Donald and Melania Trump.

Before bringing out the balloons and bears, Junior Gala Chairman, Richard Rendina, shared his experiences  as a Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor. His inspiring words encouraged guests to make additional donations to LLS.  An exciting live auction followed with Sheriff Ric Bradshaw as the Celebrity Auctioneer.

Special guests recognized included the event’s Honorary National Chairs – Rhoda & David Chase, Mary Virginia & Henry Fong, Lisa Leder, Erin & Sean McGould, Lois Pope, Sally & Dick Robinson and Kathryn & Leo Vecellio; Junior Gala Chairmen – Joey & Jamie Fago and Rich & Trish Rendina and the Gala Committee.
