Light the Night 2016 Photo Album

In case you missed last week’s 2016 Manhattan Light the Night event, our friend’s at Weill Cornell Medicine posted a photo album of the event’s festivities.


Light the Night NYC 2016 Recap

Last night’s 2016 Manhattan Light the Night event was a huge success! Each year, Light The Night brings together friends, family members, and co-workers who form fundraising teams to support lifesaving research and improve the quality of lives of blood cancer patients and their families. Participants in nearly 200 communities across North America join together carrying illuminated lanterns to take steps to end blood cancer. This year the dedicated teams from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medicine raised over $85,000, blowing away our fundraising goal…but we think we can still do more.


As the corporate chair of the LLS New York City chapter event, Dr. John Leonard spoke on the importance of the work him and his colleagues perform at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medicine before the main lamp ceremony. He emphasized that all their work is done for their patients and that this work will not be finished until there are no more blood cancers.
