There sure is a lot happening in the city this Thursday night, but this event is near and dear to my heart as it raises money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).  Society Ties Present “Fighting [Leukemia] with Fashion.” The highly anticipated third annual event raises funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives and to add potential donors to the bone marrow registry. Doors open at 7:00PM, with the main fashion event, sponsored by City Model and Talent, beginning at 8:30PM. The event also offers an open bar from 7:00PM to 9:00PM sponsored by Diageo Liquors. General admission tickets will be on sale for $35 until June 23rd. Tickets will also be available at the door for $40.

Sadly, I’ll be out of town for the event, but I’m raising money for the cause in another way….by running the NYC Marathon this November as part of LLS’s Team in Training. My goal is to raise $3,450 for LLS! I’ve been to plenty of events and know the design industry loves to support a worthy cause. More details can be found on my fundraising page. I’ll be updating it throughout the training season. 26.2 miles…here I come!
