On Saturday, November 5th the Lilabean Foundation celebrated the 11th Annual Fall Ball! This year’s theme was Purpose. Passion. Progress. The event featured a sell out crowd with over 425 attendees, both in-person or virtually, and LBF is thrilled to announce that, thanks to all who supported the event, we raised over $500,000! These funds will support the efforts of doctors and researchers who are working diligently to find safe and effective treatments for children who are battling pediatric brain cancer. We know there is not enough time for these kids, and these funds will help to make progress NOW.
This year’s in-person event featured a HERO Wall Sponsored by our friends at Peraton. This was an interactive Wall that featured 13 of the LBF Heroes and shared their stories and first hand battle with pediatric brain cancer. The event also featured an incredible Keynote Speech from Dr. Jay Storm, Co-Executive Director; Chief, Division of Neurosurgery, Center for Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine at CHOP.
Our friends at Katten sponsored the Jack Preston Purssord Courage award which was presented to 12 year old Max Pound. We were honored to be joined by Max’s Mom, Carol as well as his siblings. The program wrapped up with the premiere of the 11 Year LBF Video.
We are so grateful for the overwhelming support of our sponsors, attendees, and anyone who supported the event. LBF remains committed to continuing to fund important research which will uncover better treatment options and outcomes for children with brain cancer.
