The mission of  AM Charity Fund and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.


The AM Charity Fund recognize that LLS is at the forefront of the fight to cure cancer. Compared to other blood cancer nonprofits, LLS is the largest funder of cutting-edge research to advance cures. They have invested more than $1.2 billion in research. They are leaders in advancing breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics, and personalized medicine. This research saves lives. These revolutionary new treatments originally discovered through blood cancer research are now being tested in clinical trials for other cancers and the AM Charity Fund proudly every year in honor of Jesse.E Smithcontributes to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) from funds raised by it’s charity events, Dancing with The Twin Cities Celebrities and this year we are proud to have our first AM Charity Fund THEATER SHOW.

Patient Access

As the leading source of free blood cancer information, education and support for patients, survivors, families and healthcare professionals, LLS helps patients navigate their cancer treatment and ensures they have access to quality, affordable and coordinated care. Research will help us achieve an end to cancer. In the meantime, patients need help before, during and after their diagnosis and treatment. LLS is the leading nonprofit that does just that.

Policy and Advocacy

Together through a nationwide grassroots network of more than 100,000 volunteers, we advocate for policies at the state and federal level in a commitment to remove barriers to care for cancer patients. Our efforts have helped increase federal research funds, speed the review and approval process of new therapies and ensure patients are able to access lifesaving treatments. Many of the policies that we advocate for, at the state and federal levels, are universally beneficial for all cancer patients.

Since the first Dancing with the Twin Cities Celebrities in 2010, AM CHARITY FUND  has given over $300,000.00 to LLS and a multiple of other community non-profit organizations.

The Smith family and the Twin Cities Arthur Murray Dance Centers are proud to sponsor the first Theater Show, Evolution of Dance.

Arthur Murray professional and amateurs will perform to raise money for LLS  at the beautiful and historical Women’s Club of Minneapolis.
