Lisa Singleton: Meet the Chair of the 2015 Saint Valentine's Day Luncheon & Fashion Show
Lisa Singleton is at the helm of the 2015 Saint Valentine's Day Luncheon & Fashion Show to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). She has her hands full with a successful career and a busy family life but is dedicating time and effort to making this event a great success. Learn more about the 2015 Chair and why she is working so diligently on the Luncheon.
1. You have a busy career and active family life, what made you decide to chair the Saint Valentine's Day Luncheon & Fashion Show?
I am truly honored to serve as Chair for the 2015 Saint Valentine's Day Luncheon & Fashion Show. The opportunity to make a difference, to take a leadership role and to move the Luncheon into its 31st year were all powerful motivators. As well as being able to work with a tremendous group of volunteers who have been able to raise millions since the Luncheon's inception. While we have a terrific, time, we truly understand the gravity and importance of providing hope and support to those who have been impacted by blood cancers. I am happy to be able to play a small part in helping to raise awareness and dollars to support LLS.
2. Do you have a personal connection to the LLS mission?
I do have a personal connection. My mother was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2009 and she has continued her battle with the disease since then. She is currently finishing up a clinical trial and we have hope that she will have made some good progress.
3. What are you most looking forward to at this year's Luncheon?
The fashions, of course! All kidding aside, this is such an opportunity to create a community of understanding about the need to fund blood cancer research and to support and honor those who are, or have been, impacted. It's everyone in the room working together to raise the funds to support research and programs for North Texas patients and their families. That's what makes this Luncheon special.
4. Why do you believe in the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society?
I believe that, working together, we can find a cure for blood cancers in my lifetime. Providing hope for patients and their families is the basis for everything we are doing. I'm proud to support LLS.
