Butterfly Ball

The Butterfly Ball is Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s biggest annual fundraising event, bringing together 600 people from Philadelphia, the surrounding areas – and beyond. This inspirational evening has something for everyone: fabulous live and silent auctions; personal stories of our honorees; dessert and dancing with a live band; and a welcoming community of LBBC’s supporters.  

Join us! LBBC’s 2019 Butterfly Ball will be Saturday, November 9 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. The evening, which starts at 6:30 pm, features cocktails & live auction, followed by seated dinner and program, and then ending with dessert buffet and dancing until midnight.
