Fundraising is now well underway at First American Bank! Our employees have truly embraced the challenge and are coming up with new, creative fundraising ideas every day. Between funds raised on this team page and those raised in the branches, we have already raised over $1,000!
Our Main Office, West Broad, North Athens, Kroger- College Station and Watkinsville branches are all currently selling raffle tickets for some great Labor Day grilling baskets. Each branch has a slightly different basket, but they all contain the essentials for a perfect Labor Day cookout. Stop by one of the branches and purchase your raffle tickets before it's too late! A map of our locations can be found here.
Why We Walk
Aug 03, 2012
Welcome to First American Bank's Light The Night Walk Team homepage.
Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Hundreds of thousands of participants raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services. First American Bank is proud to participate in our local walk each year in Athens, Georgia.
For more than 60 years, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has been solely focused on people with blood cancers. Presently, LLS has more than $250 million committed to research across the United States and in ten other countries. Every dollar is provided by concerned donors. We invest in the best, outcome based science:
- Anywhere, with no geographic or institutional boundaries
- Without profit incentive
- To meet unmet Medicare needs of people with blood cancers
And LLS funded advances are helping patients beyond those for whom they were originally developed, including people with solid tumors and auto-immune diseases. In the past decade, nearly 50% (19 out of 39) of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA were approved as treatments for blood cancer patients. Twelve are already approved for people beyond those for whom they were first developed. With your help, we are saving lives.
Please join our team's effort today by registering to walk with us or by making a donation. First American Bank will contribute $10 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for every walker we register to our team! Your participation in the Light The Night Walk will help save lives. Be sure to check our team Web site frequently to see our progress, and thanks for your support!
