Yardley, PA (PRWEB) May 14, 2015
Global Traveler’s annual online charity travel auction raised an impressive $91,529 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. For the fifth 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 Air Canada, Delta Air Lines, Asiana Airlines, Swiss International Air Lines and United Airlines. One million IHG Rewards Club points garnered the highest number of bids, raising more than $10,000 in the fight to cure blood cancers.
“We are honored and humbled to continue to raise significant money 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. A big thank you to everyone involved, as the monies donated will go a long way in finding a cure for blood and lymph cancers.”
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.
