Tomorrow night, roughly 700 people plan to walk through the Inner Harbor carrying red and white illuminated balloons. The walkers -- participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Soci-ety's sixth annual Baltimore Light the Night Walk -- are expected to raise more than $100,000 to research cures for these diseases.

The walk is open to the public and free of charge, although only those who have raised $25 or more will be given a balloon. Cancer survivors carry white balloons; other walkers will carry red balloons.

Walkers will meet at 6 p.m. at Rash Field and will go 2.5 miles. Top 40 cover band Krystal Klear will provide live entertainment, and there will be food for participants.

Rash Field is on the south side of the Inner Harbor along Key Highway. Call 410-825-2500 for more information.

Artist and vocalist Joyce J. Scott teams up with blues singer Lea Gilmore this weekend for two performances with the Eric Byrd Trio at Creative Alliance at the Patterson.

The two singers have wanted to collaborate for a few years, and the show will include elements of blues, jazz, funk and gospel.

We're told it will have an Aretha Franklin feel to it.

After the Baltimore performances, Gilmore takes off for a European tour.

The shows are at 8 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday. Tickets cost $20 at the door and $15 in advance.

Creative Alliance is at 3134 Eastern Ave. For more information, call 410-276-1651 or visit
