On Saturday, September 18th Grey Hawk Golf Club in Lagrange will host a fundraising event to raise donations for the American Diabetes Association and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Great Lakes Integrated, a marketing solutions provider, with locations in Cleveland and Avon Lake is sponsoring the event to help raise funds for both charities.
“We know it’s tough out there right now,” said Senior Vice President at Great Lakes Integrated, Dean Hanisko. “So this is one of the ways we can bring a group together and enjoy a day of challenging golf, donate to a good cause and help fight two debilitating diseases. If someone happens to get a birdie in the right place, they’ll have more than a warm feeling to take home as well.”
Great Lakes Integrated provides web based marketing communications systems, print and fulfillment for ADA and LLS. These systems allow each organization to enjoy reduced internal organizational costs, which helps funnel more funds towards finding cures for these diseases. The fundraising is just a little bonus to help fund research and education at both organizations which is where the battle is waged in earnest. Proceeds from the event will be split equally between the two organizations.
“We appreciate the generosity of Grey Hawk, our suppliers who have donated gifts, and all the participants from around the area to help us make even this small difference”, said Jim Schultz, CEO of Great Lakes Integrated.
Both charities are hosting fund-raising walks on October 2nd 2010.
If you’d like to participate in either walk – the American Diabetes Association “Step-Out” walk event is at 9:00 am at the Time Warner Cable Amphitheater and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Light the Night” walk is at Progressive Field 5:00 pm.
