On Saturday, April 20, 2013, the personal injury firm of Hupy and Abraham sponsored the "10th Annual Milwaukee Oyster Roast," an event that benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The event was held at the Garage of the Harley-Davidson Museum and featured a silent auction in addition to all-you-can-eat South Carolina Oysters.
Local vendors and restaurants offered samples of their best southern cuisine and guests were invited to enjoy drinks and dancing throughout the night. The event featured live music by Evan Christian, a local musician, and Jackie Brown & the Boys, a Milwaukee alternative rock band.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer research. Their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life for patients and their families. As well as funding lifesaving blood cancer research around the world, LLS also provides free information and support services.
After the event, we received this note from the campaign coordinator of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society:
Dear Hupy and Abraham:
