PORSCHE OF NEW ORLEANS MAKING WAVES IN THE FIGHT AGAINST BLOOD CANCER

Porsche of New Orleans is proud to be the Title Sponsor of the 2018 New Orleans Leukemia Cup Regatta!

 

This is a thrilling series of sailing events combining the joy of boating with the important task of raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

 

We are making waves in the fight against cancer by raising crucial funds for research and patient services.

 

Join us April 7-8 for this event benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) at the Southern Yacht Club. The weekend includes two days of sailing on Lake Pontchartrain, cocktails with the Commodore, party at the Southern Yacht Club, and a Cajun BBQ trophy presentation.

 

The mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is to Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. As the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer, LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.

 

About the New Orleans Leukemia Cup Regatta

 

For nearly 31 years, participants in the New Orleans Leukemia Cup Regatta have been sailing, power boating, and paddling in communities throughout the country in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Individuals form fundraising teams that help galvanize relationships between friends, family and business contacts. The team that raises the most in their community receives the coveted Leukemia Cup.

 

Since its inception, the Leukemia Cup Regatta has raised millions of dollars for lifesaving research and patient services, bringing help and hope to patients and their families.
