NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – The South Carolina Stingrays, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Washington Capitals and AHL’s Hershey Bears, completed their month of fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by raising $6,546 to be donated to LLS.
Players and staff worked together throughout the month of October towards a goal of $6,000, surpassing that amount thanks to members of the community. Funds were raised through individual staff and player fundraising pages as well as auctions for a Stingrays jersey and player signed stick through DASH Auction. All money raised through Light The Night allows The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to fund treatments for patients who are suffering from all forms of blood cancers.
“Community is and always will be at the forefront for the Stingrays organization,” says President Rob Concannon. “We are proud to have raised $6,546 for this year’s LLS fundraiser thanks to the support of our local fans and corporate sponsors.”
This year’s Light the Night in-person ceremony has been cancelled, but on Thursday, October 28th, there will be a virtual event to celebrate everybody’s fundraising accomplishments. As part of the ceremony over Zoom, you will hear mission stories, watch the Light the Night ceremony, and celebrate the top fundraisers. There will be Light the Night activities as well, including Circle of Survivors, Remembrance Pavilion, Virtual Lantern, and more.
“We look forward to continuing our support for the LLS,” says Concannon.
