The Diamond Ball is the premier black tie gala of the Western & Central New York Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). The Chairman of the Diamond Ball is Rakesh Jobanputra, Treasurer of Columbus McKinnon Corporation and current President of LLS's Board of Trustees.
The concept of the Diamond Ball is that each guest receives a pouch containing a genuine gemstone; and one guest goes home with a ONE-CARAT DIAMOND.
The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres during a Silent Auction that features a variety of luxury items and a collection of many unique pieces donated by the community. Dinner is served at 8:00 p.m. and a program follows. Guests can dance the night away with a live band, featuring Total Eclipse. Jacquie Walker, News Anchor at WIVB-TV, Channel 4, will once again donate her time and talents to serve as Mistress of Ceremonies.
