Yardley, PA (PRWEB) June 07, 2013
Global Traveler’s annual online charity travel auction raised an impressive $95,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. For the third consecutive year, the auction directly benefitted The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter; 100 percent of the proceeds go toward the fight to end blood cancers.
Among the hotel stays, flights and travel products up for bids, the most hotly bid items included two around-the-world business-class tickets on oneworld, which raised more than $10,000 for charity, and 1 million Priority Club Rewards Points, at nearly $10,000. Other popular items were round-trip business-class tickets on Brussels Airlines, South African Airways, Etihad Airways, Asiana Airlines and Swiss International Air Lines; and hotels stays at The Address Downtown Dubai, The Peninsula Beverly Hills, The Rittenhouse Hotel and many more.
“We are honored and humbled to have raised almost $100,000 for LLS,” said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO, Global Traveler. “As a member of the Board of Trustees, this cause is near and dear to my heart, and I send my sincere thanks to everyone who bid this year.”
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (lls.org) is dedicated to finding a cure for blood and lymph cancers. LLS awarded more than $750 million in research funding for all blood cancers.
