For the third year in a row, Team Cardinal participated in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Annual Light the Night Walk at Angels Stadium on Saturday, September 29th. This year, Team Cardinal consisted of 67 members including staff members, friends, family, business partners and clients. The team raised $12,594.48, exceeding its goal of $10,000.00, to help LLS reach its 2012 goal of $1.5 million and earned a spot as one of the top 5 corporate teams. The mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS has contributed over $750 million to critical blood cancer research. Last year over 40,000 patients received financial assistance and free educational information, and patient and caregiver support, from LLS totaling over $6 million. Team members enjoyed the special tent in the VIP area and enjoyed the festivities, food and treats. Each team member received a Light the Night t-shirt as well as an illuminated balloon for the walk. The team also took a photograph with Dennis Kuhl, the Chairman of Angels Baseball, as well as the former Angel and Hall of Fame Member, Rod Carew. Team Cardinal reached its goal by receiving generous donations from business partners, family and friends and by successfully holding its first Bunco and Silent Auction Fundraiser Event on September 14th. The prom-themed event was a huge success and raised over $3,700.00. Attendees of the event dressed in their best prom attire and enjoyed a night of Bunco, food, drinks, pictures and of course, battling each other for silent auction items. Team Cardinal wishes to thank everyone for their generous support and looks forward to another successful fundraising year for 2013.
