The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society invites you to help lead us to a cure at a cheerful, glamorous affair with a serious mission: to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. A crowd of nearly 1,000 people is expected to join for lunch and watch a fashion show.

Fashion and Philanthropy! A pairing that’s never passé. Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon and Fashion Show is one of the leading fund-raising events for the North Texas Chapter and one of the top fund-raising galas for the Society nationwide, the Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon & Fashion Show draws an audience of more than 800 social and civic leaders in the North Texas region. This year, we hope to raise more than $480,000 toward blood cancer research.

About The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Robert Roesler de Villiers, son of a well-to-do New York family, was only 16 when he quickly succumbed to leukemia in 1944. Five years later, frustrated by the lack of effective treatments for what was then considered a hopeless disease, parents Rudolph and Antoinette de Villiers started a fundraising and education organization in their son’s name.
