Eastern PA Chapter of Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Announces New Sites for 2010 Light The Night Walks

Additional Corporate Sponsors and Walk Teams Sought for October Walks

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwire - May 4, 2010) -  Light The Night, the signature fundraising Walk campaign for the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), has exciting new developments for 2010. New Campaign Director, Sarah Lindenmuth, notes two new Walk sites.

"Just confirmed is the Philadelphia Park Racetrack for our newly combined Bucks-Montgomery Counties Walk and The Art Museum for our Philadelphia Walk. We are confident that these new sites will provide added visibility for LLS's mission: to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life for patients and their families, and also make for an unforgettable Walk experience." For the second year in a row, Tina Fey will serve as Light The Night's National Spokesperson. 

The fall 2010 Light The Night Walk schedule is as follows:

October 2 Scranton Walk Nay Aug Park
October 9 Bucks-Mont Walk New Site: Philadelphia Park Racetrack
October 9 Camden Walk Campbell's Field
October 16 Lehigh Valley Walk Northampton Community College
October 23 Chester County Walk Wilson Farm Park
October 23 Philadelphia Park New Site: The Art Museum

The Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter is also pushing hard to garner more corporate support within the community. "There are several great ways to serve, the easiest is to form a fundraising Walk team and the other is to become a corporate sponsor, which will guarantee marketing exposure to reach over 10,000 Light The Night participants in the region," says Lindenmuth. "Partnership with Light The Night empowers employees to give back to the community in a meaningful way, while enhancing company morale."
