On September 13, a handful of my teammates from Generac’s supply chain and I participated in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk. Some of you may have noticed the link I had posted here in August and the first few weeks of September, so I want to give everyone an update on my team’s very successful fundraiser:
I am proud to announce that we raised over $21,000, which is more than double our initial goal of $10,000. Generac raised the most money of all the participating companies with a total of over $80,000. I also exceeded my goal of $100, raising $152.47. On behalf of my team, I want to sincerely thank everyone who donated to this amazing cause.
I was honored to be chosen as the illustrator for my team’s banner. My lovely coworker, Sue, and I are actually standing in front of the Magnum light tower featured in my illustration.
I had a great time at the walk, despite the rain when we first arrived. Shortly before the walk started, the sun came out and a double rainbow appeared over Lake Michigan followed by a gorgeous sunset: the perfect ending for such an inspirational day.
