The gala will have live hip hop and Latin dance performances and music by Crash Boom Bang and Chris Crab. There will

Candidates for the LLS’s Man & Woman of the Year title compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. Every dollar raised counts as one vote, and the titles are awarded to the man and woman with the most votes at the end of 10 weeks; the top local fundraisers in the country win the national titles. Funds raised by the fund blood cancer research, financial assistance to cover patient expenses, education materials, local programs and comprehensive, personalize assistance through the LLS Information Research Center.
For my ladies, Chris Bukowski from The Bachelorette will be there. Now who would want to miss that? DC on Heels photographer Natan and I will also be attending this event.
