Over 500 guests attended the annual Wellness House Ball on October 21. The Radiance Ball guests dined, danced, and donated to advance cancer wellness at The Geraghty Chicago. Co-Chairs Meaghan Daly and Briana Murray kicked off the evening and shared their personal connection to the mission of Wellness House.

Dinner was followed by an action-packed live auction and paddle raise, along with a touching video that told the story of how a breast cancer survivor, her husband, and her daughter found strength and hope through individual and family counseling at Wellness House.

“People facing cancer find a community of support and healing at Wellness House every day. Thanks to generous donors like those who attended The Radiance Ball, there is never a cost for our programs. All of us at Wellness House are grateful for their generosity,” said Lisa Kolavennu, Chief Executive Officer of Wellness House.
