Burr’s Clark Spoden Serves In Key Role For Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Annual Light The Night
The Tennessee Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) recently held its annual executive breakfast meeting to kick off its recruitment of corporate support for the Light The Night campaign in Nashville. Nashville Partner Clark Spoden will serve as the “Corporate Walk Chair.” Spoden is tasked with bringing on corporate support and donations for the campaign.
Close to 200 Nashville business community members attended the event at Richland Country Club to learn about the impact of cancer in the workplace and how LLS is giving people reasons to believe that we can beat cancer through life-saving research, support, and education. Chip Hoback, former LLS Man of the Year recipient, kicked off the event by sharing how cancer has affected his family.
“With your help, every year our list of corporate partners continues to grow larger and larger,” said Clark Spoden. “We’re so thankful to them and their continued support and commitment to the fight against blood cancers.”
The 2019 Light The Night event will take place Friday, Nov. 1, at Nissan Stadium.
“The support received from corporate sponsors is appreciated much more than imaginable,” said Heather Rohan, President, TriStar Health. “Because of their support, we are able to fund lifesaving research, and give patients a chance not only to fight but win their battle against cancer.”
LLS hosts 140 Walks nationwide, with more than 1 million participants every year. To find out more about forming a team or participating in Light The Night this fall, visit www.lightthenight.org.
