The 10th Annual BeatLeukemia Ball

The Fab Four does it again at the 10th Annual BeatLeukemia Ball
presented by McGladrey benefiting LeukemiaTexas
(November 5, 2012)

The Trinity Ballroom at the Omni Hotel Dallas was packed as
guests visited with friends during the reception, enjoyed a fabulous dinner, and never left the dance floor with The Fab Four at the 10th annual BeatLeukemia Ball presented by McGladrey benefiting LeukemiaTexas.

The air was filled with excitement as guests entered the ballroom to the sounds of the Highland Park High School string quartet, posed on the red carpet in front of the Hollywood backdrop, and were treated to cocktails and hors d’ouervres.

For those who don’t know, The Fab Four - The Ultimate Tribute to The Beatles! is the spectacular musical show for which The BeatLeukemia Ball is renowned and patrons look orward to every year.

The stage was offset with two huge media screens and surrounded with beautiful draping, which also set the base at the tables, topped with priceless pieces of guitar and musical artwork decorated by LeukemiaTexas patients at Cook Children’s Hospital – all available as a donation.

Dinner began with Tomato Mozzarella and Lobster salad followed by a perfectly executed filet and shrimp duo accompanied by a seared potato terrine, vegetables and white chocolate mousse and raspberry cake with truffles. All enhanced by Hess Chardonnay, Banif Pinot Grigio and Main Street Winery Cabernet Sauvignon.

Jay Cresswell, Assistant Program Director, 98.7 KLUV, and Roger Hendren,
LeukemiaTexas Board President welcomed guests and explained how meaningful donations are to those who suffer with this sometimes fatal disease. Donations in any amount are always welcome as guests were directed to the tall donation tower, lit from inside with the
LeukemiaTexas logo, making a striking presence and visited often
by donors.

They were followed by Honorary Chair and Retired Southwest Airlines Captain, Dick East who shared his story of losing is daughter Muffy to leukemia close to 30 years ago.

Captain East emphasized the importance of continuing the fight against leukemia and remaining dedicated to the LeukemiaTexas mission.
Following Captain East, Keith and Jude Cobler joined the stage to share 8 year old Jude’s story with leukemia. After the audience was inspired by this young boy’s courage and determination, LeukemiaTexas representatives surprised Jude and his father with a patient
aid check for $1,000.

Immediately following the surprise gift, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings declared October 27th through November 2nd at LeukemiaTexas Week in
Dallas, Texas!

To continue the excitement, Jay Cresswell came back to the stage to announce the musical trivia contest, “KLUV 98.7 FM has joined with Northpark Center to offer a spectacular prize package, so get ready! The table that wins this year’s music trivia contest receives $100 in Northpark Gold for each person at the table.”

The Battle of BeatLeukemia Ball tables ensued. As sixteen song snippets played, entries were made and Table # 1 scored the grand prize.
After much applause, the audience was teased with an historic and entertaining film highlighting the history of The Beatles. The ballroom went black and then bright with excitement as The Fab Four took the stage dressed in trademark suits and ties, singing “I Saw Her Standing There.”
The dance floor was full beginning with the first refrain. After the first break, The Fab Four dazzled, dressed in Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band full satin regalia, singing all of our favorites. The second break brought the Fab Four back dressed more subdued, with
“John” singing “Imagine” and ending with an encore of “Hey, Jude” with everyone swaying with raised arms in beat and tribute to The Beatles. The best part of the finale was when the Beatles serenaded 8 year old LeukemiaTexas patient, Jude Cobler on stage, where he
later shared “that was the second best time in his life!”….
second to beating leukemia.
