Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Lilly!

Although those words don't usually go together in your mind, the Fashion Valley Lilly Pulitzer boutique is teaming up with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Ronald McDonald House to host a special day of shopping and sharing at Lilly!

Here is a little more information about the Holiday Party: For 30 years, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of San Diego has been providing a Holiday Party, a break from illness, for hundreds of families of children with blood cancers. It is a day to forget their troubles and reunite with the community of families like theirs.

Ronald McDonald House is partnering with LLS for the second time. This means that together, we will also be hosting their patients and families, some staying in San Diego, far away from home, while a child in their family is in the hospital. Let's help make them feel the holiday spirit, too! This year we will host over 300 child patients and their often overlooked siblings, to lunch, crafts, fun entertainment, raffles and Santa, with gifts for everyone at the Sheraton Hotel. Everything must be donated, no funds are taken from the Society's mission to find a cure.

This sounds like such a lovely event! If you are in the area, I would highly recommend stopping by this event on Monday, November 30!
