Big news from Light The Night 2021

On Saturday, November 6, a team from Cox Consulting Network joined with the Austin community to fight cancer and “Light The Night” at The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s annual walk.

After postponing in-person events for over a year, the atmosphere was full of excitement and spirits were high. Hundreds of participants lifted glowing red, yellow, and white lanterns for a dazzling effect around Mueller Lake Park. As a “Bright Light Sponsor,” CCN team members also handed out flashlights throughout the evening.

Thank you for helping to make an incredible impact

Over the past year, the CCN team has been hard at work raising awareness and personal donations. In October, our third annual team event, Beer Beats Cancer, raised over $10,000 for the cause!

In addition, CCN committed to donate 50 cents for every hour billed by its network of specialized finance, accounting, and HR consultants, generating over $20,000 to Light The Night.

Altogether, the CCN team was able to raise $40,831.69, more than doubling its $20,000 target! This incredible achievement is truly a testament to our generous network and many leaders who found creative ways to get their communities involved. Thank you!!

This year, several CCN team members also participated in the Light The Night Executive Challenge. Over the course of 8 weeks, 26 Challengers in the Austin area raised $194,000 for the LLS mission. CCN Challengers, Andy Cox, Tammy McCarty, Leanne Noskey, and Delena Spenser raised $31,707 combined.

Overall, the event brought in a total of $720,000, just shy of its $800,000 goal. Since its founding in 1949, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has invested nearly $1.3 billion bringing us closer to cures and supporting local families affected by blood cancers.
