Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 06, 2014
Dr. Jonathan Christenbury and the Christenbury Eye Center donated a LASIK eye surgery to be included in the Silent Auction at the Grand Finale celebration of the Charlotte Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual Man & Woman of the Year Campaign. The annual fundraiser allows local philanthropists to run their own donation campaigns to compete for Man and Woman of the Year. The candidates who raise the most money receive this distinguished honor. All proceeds are raised in honor of this year's Boy and Girl of the Year, Hamilton Grant, 7 years old, and Audrey Cox, 3 years old. Audrey and Hamilton were both diagnosed and treated for ALL Leukemia and are in remission and well today.
The Campaign continues until June 7, 2014, when it comes to a close at the Grand Finale celebration to be held at the Center City Marriott, in Charlotte, NC. Christenbury Eye Center encourages the Charlotte community to support the Society's work to raise funds for Leukemia and Lymphoma by making a donation and/or purchasing tickets to the Grand Finale Celebration.
All proceeds raised are used to fund the needs of blood cancer patients in the Charlotte area. To date, Christenbury Eye Center has provided both monetary and procedure donations that have helped raise more than $20,000 for this worthy cause, and Dr. Christenbury hopes this year's donation will bring even more valuable funds to help those cancer patients in need of assistance.
Dr. Christenbury said, "We look forward to this exciting event every year. Knowing that our local community will directly benefit from our donation makes us very proud to be involved. We encourage our patients and community to participate by donating to the campaign and attending the celebration where they can bid on many valuable items, including ours."
