For the past six years, The Upper West has hosted the Oscars Watch Party to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). LLS is dedicated to funding research, finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Since 1949, LLS has funded advancements in chemotherapies, stem cell transplants, targeted therapies and immunotherapies for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma that are saving thousands of lives today. LLS is currently involved with more than 300 active research projects.
Local athletes Sara Fay and Chrystine Garner are co-hosting the Oscars Party with The Upper West. They are currently training for triathlons to raise awareness and funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s important research and patient programs. Over the years, Chrystine and Sara have raised more than $100,000 for the cause.
In addition to an Oscar ballot contest, silent auction and opportunity drawing, the Upper West contributes a percentage of all Oscar night sales to LLS.
