Become a Sponsor

The Black Tie Ball is the Mid-America Chapter’s signature black-tie gala. Each year, Kansas City's most generous business and community leaders gather to support the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. For more than three decades, generous sponsors have made an impact in the fight against blood cancers, and on behalf of our patients and their families, we thank you for your support.
