    ALTON (March 6, 2015) – The American Cancer Society’s 45th Annual Mardi Gras Ball, hosted by John Simmons and the law firm Simmons Hanly Conroy, LLC, has raised a record breaking amount of $372,000 for the society.  The amount is the most in the 45 year history of the event, which took place Feb. 17 at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville, Ill., and welcomed nearly 800 people.
    “It was very inspirational to see people from all parts of our community fight back against cancer,” said Brett Schuette, Senior Market Manager for the American Cancer Society.  “Together, we celebrated those surviving cancer, remembered loved ones lost too soon, and took action to finish the fight once and for all.”
    This was the first year that John Simmons and the firm served as host and presenting sponsor of the ball, which was masquerade and black tie optional.
