(SAVANNAH, GA) Enmark Stations, Inc., is pleased to announce that their customers helped raise $65,468 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light The Night Walk. During the entire month of May, the company’s 62 stores in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina sold Light The Night paper balloon icons for $1 each in support of LLS’s mission to cure blood cancer and help patients and their families.
“I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the extraordinary generosity of our customers,” said Enmark Stations, Inc. Vice President Houstoun Demere, who lost his mother to leukemia when he was just 6 years old. “Their support will go a long way to helping the LLS find a cure for leukemia and lymphoma.”
The three Enmark stations that raised the most money were the stores on Waters Avenue, Abercorn Expressway and Bluffton Parkway.
Savannah’s Light The Night Walk will take place on Friday, October 18 in Forsyth Park. During the event, walkers carry an illuminated balloon along the walk route. Cancer patients and survivors will carry white balloons as “lights of hope,” supporters carry red balloons and those walking in remembrance of someone carry gold balloons. Georgia’s Light The Night’s fundraising efforts have grown to more than $2 million dollars at five walks across the state, including the walk in Savannah.
