Nearly 350 supporters from around the country attended the Lymphoma Research Foundation's Annual Gala on September 27, 2017 at The Plaza Hotel in New York City. The event was an enormous success, raising over $925,000 and counting. 

As LRF continues to grow its reach and impact, we are powered by our generous donors, volunteers, and partners like you, without whom our ability to serve the blood cancer community would be impossible.

Thanks to your participation in this year’s festivities and commitment to our shared mission, we remain steadfast in finding innovative ways to ensure that patients, caregivers, healthcare providers and researchers have the tools needed to improve the future for all those affected by this disease. Thank you for sharing in this evening, Powered by Innovation.
