September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month

Looking to get involved with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) during Blood Cancer Awareness Month?  Below you will find all of the upcoming events that you can get involved with this month.  Also, several North Texas businesses and organizations have created opportunities for you to shop and give back to LLS at the same time.  Check out our retail and third party partners, please visit them and thank them for helping to create a world without blood cancers.  

Country mega star Marina McBride and friends are coming to Dallas for the Band Against Cancer - The Sarah Cannon Tour to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The concert is scheduled for Friday, September 16th. The concert is part of a national movement to connect those facing cancer with community-based resources and support close to home.

Mark your calendars for Giving Day 2016
Thursday, September 22, from 6 AM Central – Midnight.

North Texas Giving Day is an online giving event for people across the nation (and the world!) to come together to raise as much money as possible for North Texas nonprofits on one day: September 22, 2016.  In seven years, North Texas Giving Day has pumped more than $119 million into the North Texas community. 

A number of local businesses are selling paper balloons at the register to benefit the North Texas Light The Night campaign.  These national partners raise hundreds of thousands of dollars every year to further the LLS mission. Below is a list of the participating retailers:

Burlington Coat Factory
Great American Cookies
