Top Fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Congratulations to Dr. Yolanda Reyes Guevara of Northwest Vista College, who was part of a fundraising team for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society – South Texas Chapter.

Yolanda, who is also NVC’s director of Enrollment, was selected as the Top Team Member – Top fundraiser for South Texas Chapter and brought in $10,203 for the cause!  During the virtual fundraising campaign, the team was creative and held everything from virtual Loteria nights, a virtual Zumbathon and a virtual wine tasting event.  The funds raised through the campaign provide blood cancer patients with treatment, wrap around services and also help fund research to find a cure.  She is thankful to her NVC family who donated to this campaign and supported her fundraising efforts.

On Oct. 15, the organization will have a Light The Night Walk virtually. Funds from the event are used for treatments that are saving the lives of patients today. The organization’s website said  it’s “making cures happen by providing patient support services, advocating for lifesaving treatments and pioneering the most promising cancer research anywhere. Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising teams, and consumers help by donating at retail outlets. These efforts culminate in inspirational evening walks in nearly 200 communities across North America.”
