The Annual Lympho-Maniac 70’s Party has become a big community event with a special history. Chad Landry (Founder of New Orleans Lympho-Maniacs) is a former East Jefferson General Hospital patient and Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor. He graduated from LSU, spent three years working in Houston, then moved back to New Orleans in January 2002. Shortly thereafter, he decided to hold a party with the help of friends and family in order to raise money for local New Orleans Cancer projects, programs, and services, including caring for the financial needs of those lower income families who have been impacted by Cancer. Since its inception, New Orleans Lympho-Maniacs have raised over $300,000 for local cancer causes here in New Orleans.
The 12th Annual Lympho-Maniac 70’s party is set for Saturday March 16th. 2017 in River City Ballroom of New Orleans Mardi Gras World. Advance tickets are $65/person or $75/person at the door. The 2017 Cancer fundraising goal for Lympho-Maniac Party is $150,000 with all proceeds directed to grants for lower income families who have someone being treated for cancer by an East Jefferson General Hospital or LSU Health Sciences physician. Cancer causes a financial hardship for those families, and these grants help lessen the burden by assisting with medical bills, medical travel, house notes, grocery bills, and more.
