Yardley, PA (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
Global Traveler’s annual online charity travel auction raised an impressive $109,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. For the fourth 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 business-class tickets on American Airlines, Air Canada, China Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Fiji Airways, British Airways, Asiana Airlines, SWISS and Etihad Airways. One million Priority Club Rewards Points was also an extremely popular item up for bid this year.
“We are honored and humbled to have raised more than $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. This is the most we’ve ever raised in our annual auction, and the first time we’ve exceeded our $100,000 goal. A big thank you to everyone involved.”
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.
