We're thrilled to say that we have reached and surpassed the half-million dollar mark! With nearly a hundred of our 2014 Light The Night (LTN) walkers across U.S. and Canada raising over $42,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), the overall total (from fundraising and matching grants) over the past nine years has finally hit over $533,000 raised for the LLS!
Now, for our winner of the Golden Ticket prize and announcements about some of our amazing fundraisers this year. Our Golden Ticket winner for 2014 is a team member from Newtown, CT: Steve Mitzel! He raised an incredible $11,365 individually, bringing his local team to the number one "corporate" team spot in the Newtown walks. Congrats to Steve, and thank you for being an inspiration! We'd also like to give a shout-out to our top LTN teams in Worcester, Boston, Queens, Toronto, Rochester, Anaheim, Hollywood, and Newtown that each raised over $1,200. Finally, we had 54 Champions for Cures, 11 of whom were Bright Lights who raised at least $1,000 individually!
A huge THANK YOU to all of you who continue to donate your time, energy, and efforts to support this cause. We couldn't do this without each of our fantastic team members who tirelessly raise money for the LLS via our team, year after year.
Our 2015 team is open for registration and you can sign up to be a part of Light the Night Team DJF 2015 here!
