Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk 2013

October 26, 2013
Raley Field, West Sacramento

“Team Bender” raised money for a very important cause: finding better treatments and cures for blood cancers so patients can live better, longer lives.

Read More...
We did this with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) for their annual Light The Night Walk on October 26th.

LLS is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient aid. Our family-business has a special connection with LLS because both our founder, Warren G. Bender, and one of his children, Marsha Bender-Skinner, were victims of blood-related cancers.

We all have friends, neighbors and family members who are battling cancer. Sadly, most of us know people who have lost the battle.

Warren G. Bender Co. has a longstanding commitment to supporting LLS** and in honor of our 75th Anniversary (1938-2013) we set a goal to raise $7,500 for the Light The Night Walk ($100 for each year in business). With the help and support of friends and colleagues, we are ecstatic to say we surpassed our goal and raised a total amount of $8,134.67!!
