Sold-Out ‘Blood Ball’ Raises Funds For Blood Cancer Patients
Organized by Delete Blood Cancer, the event wowed an exclusive guest list of costume-clad New Yorkers with jaw-dropping theatrics, including “dark circus” acts, an aerialist, acrobat, contortionist and a sword swallower.
The show-stopping fundraiser attracted a host of celebs and notable individuals such as Farrah Krenek, Malan Breton, Mamé Adjei, Amy Hargreaves, Jillian Tapper, Catherine Curtin, Dmitry Sholokov, Justin Kim, Evander Holyfield Jr., Carmen Carrera, Sarah Brown, Katia Kokoreva, Lily Lane, Chantelle Fraser and Rain Dove.
By the end of the night, The Blood Ball raised enough money to register more than 2,000 new potential bone marrow donors, according to Carina Ortel, CEO of Delete Blood Cancer DKMS.
