The Blood Ball, A Sought-After Halloween Bash To Benefit Delete Blood Cancer
If you’re looking for an upscale and sought-after place to spend Halloween this year, The Blood Ball may be the party for you.
The Blood Ball is an exclusive Halloween bash for a great cause; proceeds from ticket sales will support the work of Delete Blood Cancer, an organization that helps patients with blood cancers get a second chance at life. The event will take place at The Box, the ultra-trendy New York theatre-club famed for its large crowds and burlesque-style acrobatic shows.
The Blood Ball is expected to draw a crowd of approximately 250 guests, primarily “affluent and influential millennials who love to connect with culture, opportunity and authenticity…They’re conspicuous consumers who seek out unique experiences to showcase their style while giving them a chance to make a difference,” according to Delete Blood Cancer.
Many guests will be dressed in costume, while cocktails are served and pulsating music gets party-goers in the mood to dance.
Delete Blood Cancer is a leader in connecting patients fighting blood cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma, with the bone marrow donors who can help them get life-saving transplants. As part of the world’s largest bone marrow donor center, the organization has registered over 500,000 potential donors and facilitated 1,700 bone marrow transplants in the U.S. alone.
The Blood Ball may have a few A-list attendees. Delete Blood Cancer’s past events have attracted a long list of celebrities, including Vera Wang, Georgia May Jagger, Jessie J, Pharrell, Chris Tucker and Coco Rocha.
Tickets to The Blood Ball range from $250 for general admission to up to $3,500 for VIP packages. To get tickets, go to thebloodball.org. See below for more event details.
