The Leukemia Ball is one of Washington D.C.'s largest and most-anticipated black tie events. Featuring top-notch entertainment, the Mercedes-Benz raffle and an amazing silent auction you won't want to miss this inspirational evening. Given the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 33rd Annual Leukemia Ball, originally scheduled for Saturday, March 21, 2020. The new 2020 Leukemia Ball will be a virtual event on Friday, June 26, 2020.
Over the past three decades, the Leukemia Ball has reigned as one of the Greater Washington, D.C.’s largest, non-political black tie events. In 2019 the Ball raised over $3.2 million with the support of generous sponsors and donors, bringing the cumulative Leukemia Ball total to over $65 million since 1988. We enjoyed a fantastic evening for our mission with a one-of-a-kind silent auction, Mercedes-Benz drawing, comedy by Kathleen Madigan and musical entertainment by O.A.R.
