No doubt about it, Cardinal’s Ebony and Ivory Soirée was a success. It was all there in black and white.
Although the path to a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, and all blood cancers is not as clear as black and white, Cardinal hosted a black and white fundraiser in early May to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
For many years, Cardinal has been dedicated to supporting the efforts of LLS to fund research for cures and to support people who are in treatment. The Cardinal family has both lost members to these devastating diseases and is proud to have survivors as part of its team.
Thanks to the generosity of its business partners, Cardinal threw a bash to remember at the Anaheim Community Center. Guests wore black and white attire, and enjoyed hors de ’oeuvres and drinks. Cardinal’s own Irene Neelis’ homemade sangria was a hands-down hit.
The evening featured dancing to two bands, Power of Blues and Eastside Groove. Both bands featured family and friends of the Cardinal team, some of whom are in treatment for leukemia.
Business partners kindly donated gift baskets and tickets to local events for raffle prizes. Attendees donated to LLS to receive entry into the raffles that were called throughout the evening.
The evening resulted in moving Cardinal ever closer to its $15,000 annual commitment to LLS. Thank you to all!
