HARRISBURG, PA. – Gunn Mowery staff raised more than $2,000 for the annual Light the Night Walk, a fundraising campaign orchestrated by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), on November 6th at City Island. The cause aimed to bring hope to people battling blood cancers.
Communities, businesses and families all across the United States and Canada registered to raise funds for the cause. Money raised helped fund lifesaving blood cancer research, free educational materials for patients and their families, local programs and comprehensive, personalized assistance through the LLS’s Information Resource Center.
Since 2000, Gunn Mowery account executive Linda Willis has raised money for the campaign. In 2004, Gunn Mowery partnered with her efforts and has helped raise more than $50,000 toward the Light the Night Walk since then.
Hundreds of white and red balloons illuminated the night sky during the event. Participants walked around City Island, across the Walnut Street Bridge and along Front Street during the two-mile walk.
