GCG Contributes $49,000 To The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Garden City Group, Inc. (GCG), one of the largest claims administration firms in the country, has contributed $49,000 to its charity of the year, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society®.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is, according to its website, the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and services to support and improve the quality of life of leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma patients and families.

In support of the LLS, GCG employees raised money throughout the year through various activities, including a pep rally, bake sales, jeans days, sports tournaments and raffles. GCG's management team presented a $25,000 check, which included an additional corporate contribution, to the LLS. Employees and their families also raised another $24,000 through participation in and direct donations to the society's Light The Night® Walk, for a total contribution of $49,000.

"It was a heartfelt and fun experience to coordinate some of GCG's efforts, including the Light The Night Walk, and I am grateful to have been a part of such a worthwhile effort," said Tara Donohue, project manager, operations for GCG and internal fundraising coordinator for the Lake Success office.

"The Light The Night Walk was an inspirational way for GCG to show our support for such a worthy cause. I'm extremely proud of all of our employees for all their efforts, including raising an additional $24,000 through the walk," said David Isaac, chief executive officer, GCG. "These terrible diseases affect families everywhere, and we hope that our Company's support and contributions will help in working towards LLS's mission."
