Diana Ross wows the crowd at the Leukemia Ball

“We are here tonight to celebrate; to celebrate the dedicated commitment of organizations and individuals who have made the 2011 Leukemia Ball an incredible success,” said Donna McKelvey.

“We have one very special award to present this evening,” she continued.  “The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Chairman’s Citation recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of an individual who has demonstrated significant dedication and commitment to our organization.”

“Tonight’s recipient of this prestigious award has been a member of the Leukemia Ball’s Co-Chair leadership team for more than 10 years.  In the past 5 years alone, he has raised over one-half million dollars!  His outstanding efforts are truly making a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.”

“He sets the standard for the committee - he is the man to beat – he is our raffle king - and our dear friend.  It is my distinct honor to present the Chairman’s Citation to the one and only, Mr. Dan Johnson.
