As a member of Team Hope, Ballinger raised over $20,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) during our 2018 Spring Fling fundraiser. The mission of the LLS is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The organization has invested more than $1.2 billion in research to advance cures.
Ballinger’s Spring Fling included a presentation by medical oncologist, Dr. Margaret Kasner; a silent auction comprised of items donated by employees, vendors and neighborhood businesses, an evening gathering for staff, friends and family at nearby Independence Mall Café, and a fundraising competition that encouraged interdisciplinary collaboration. The firm’s principals generously volunteered to participate in an “ice bucket challenge” to raise money for the cause.
In total, the 2018 LLS Philadelphia Man and Woman of the Year campaign raised $652,516. We’re proud to be part of Team Hope and honored to create buildings that foster discoveries. Our contributions to the LLS continue our commitment to life-saving research.
