New Orleans, La, February 12th, 2019 – Today New Orleans Lympho-Maniac Cancer Fund’s President Chad Landry announced, “Proud to say that our 2019 Lympho-Maniac 70’s Gala set for Saturday March 30th at Mardi Gras World is 100% Sold Out. We can’t thank everyone enough from Greater New Orleans area for supporting our annual Cancer Fundraiser. It is going to be an incredible night!”
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 $1, 200, 000 for local cancer causes here in New Orleans.
2019’s Goal: $300, 000: All proceeds from the 2019 Lympho-Maniac Gala will be directed to financial assistance grants for lower income families who have someone being treated for Cancer by an East Jefferson General Hospital, LSU Health Sciences physician, or an Ochsner Hospital physician. Cancer causes a financial hardship for those families, and these grants help to lessen the burden by assisting with medical bills, medical travel, house notes, grocery bills, and more. Our fundraising goal this year is $300,000.
