From the Panthers:
Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today that the Florida Panthers and President & COO Michael Yormark have eclipsed the $50,000 threshold against a goal of $150,000 for the 2011 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light The Night Walk in Broward County.
Yormark and the Panthers still need to raise nearly $100,000 to reach their record-breaking goal. Fans can support the Panthers walk team and fight cancer by donating now at:
“We can all make a difference in the fight against cancer,” Yormark said. “Our staff and partners on the Panthers Walk Team are doing their part, but we need everyone’s help to reach our $150,000 goal and help LLS ‘march to a million’ during the 2011 Light The Night Walk.”
Yormark has returned as the Light The Night Broward Walk Chair for the second consecutive year and he and the Panthers walk team have set a record fundraising goal of $150,000.
The 2011 Light The Night Walk in Broward County will take place on Saturday, Nov. 12 at the Huizenga Plaza in downtown Ft. Lauderdale.
In 2010, the Panthers raised a record $130,000 against a goal of $100,000, and Yormark was the top individual South Florida fundraiser at $50,000. On the whole, Light The Night raised more than $915,000, but LLS has set a fundraising goal of $1,000,000 in 2011.
