Lymphoma Foundation to host chic fashion luncheon

This year, Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) has partnered with Saks Fifth Avenue, Boca Raton to present a chic fashion luncheon, which will feature a Best of Spring 2012 Fashion Show, as well as a shopping boutique in which a portion of all sales will be donated to LRF.

There will also be high-end raffle prizes, including John Hardy Sterling Silver & Diamond jewelry donated by Saks Fifth Avenue, Boca Raton, as well as a live auction featuring a Canyon Ranch spa package for two in Tucson, Arizona, and a three night stay at The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia.

More than 5,000 people were diagnosed with lymphoma – the most common form of blood cancer – in Florida last year alone. To raise critical funds for blood cancer research, the Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) – the nation's largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to funding innovative lymphoma research and to serving those touched by the disease – will host its Sixth Annual South Florida Luncheon on January 30, 2012 at St.

Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton, Florida. Over the past five years, the luncheon has raised more than half a million dollars to support the Lymphoma Research Foundation's mission of eradicating lymphoma and serving those touched by the disease.

“The South Florida Luncheon raises funds for lymphoma research that can hopefully, one day, cure this type of blood cancer,” said Judith Bronsteen, one of the Luncheon's co-chairs. “As the wife of a lymphoma survivor, I know firsthand the impact that investing in research can have, and I look forward to the day that we eradicate this disease.”

“We are honored to partner with the Lymphoma Research Foundation for its Sixth Annual South Florida Luncheon, and to have the opportunity to use fashion to find a cure for the most common type of blood cancer,” said Shauna Graham McNellis, Marketing Director for Saks Fifth Avenue, Boca Raton. “Saks Fifth Avenue, Boca Raton is committed to serving those who are touched by lymphoma in its community.”

The charity event, which has now become a staple in the affluent South Florida region, is co-chaired by Judith Bronsteen, Gladys Cook, Elisabeth Dalfen, Ellen Liebman, Mitzi Oreman and Jane Yudell.

Dr. Morton Coleman, Clinical Professor of Medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University and the Director of the Center for Lymphoma and Myeloma at New York Presbyterian Hospital, will serve as the event's keynote speaker.

“As the mother of a lymphoma survivor, the Florida Luncheon is especially meaningful to me,” said event co-chair, Jane Yudell. “Each year, I am amazed at the generosity and commitment that all of our supporters have to not only making the event such a wonderful success, but to making a meaningful difference in the lives of all those touched by lymphoma.”

The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) is the nation's largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to funding innovative research and providing people with lymphoma and healthcare professionals with up-to-date information about this type of cancer. LRF's mission is to eradicate lymphoma and serve those touched by this disease.

Saks Fifth Avenue, one of the world's preeminent specialty retailers, is renowned for its superlative American and international designer collections, its expertly edited assortment of handbags, shoes, jewelry, cosmetics and gifts, and the first-rate fashion expertise and exemplary client service of its Associates.
