Liga Contra el Cáncer 41st Anniversary Gala

Benefiting uninsured and low income patients

Benjamin Leon Jr. & Silvia Leon

Liga Contra el Cáncer / League Against Cancer commemorated its 41st Anniversary by hosting its Snow Ball Gala at the JW Marriott-Marquis in Miami. They honored volunteer physicians for their outstanding and unselfish dedication to Liga’s cancer patients. With this event, Liga celebrated Leon Medical Center’s 20th anniversary of service to our community and the years of support to our patients. All proceeds from the events and auction will benefit uninsured and low income cancer patients unable to afford the treatment and get well.

The Gala counted with the presence of Dr. Luis Villa, President; Adriana Cora, Executive Vice-President of the League, and Manuel “Manny” Alfonso, Chairperson, who were excellent coordinators of the event.

The unforgettable evening brought together over 500 supporters who enjoyed a fantastic gala dinner accompanied with a good selection of wines, complemented with live music and the presence of Willy Chirinos. The remarkable auction of services to the cause raised over $100,000 to benefit patients with cancer.
