Enmarket Raises Over $30,000 for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Enmarket Raises Over $30,000 for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in Support of Savannah’s Light the Night

(SAVANNAH, GA) In support of the Light the Night event, all of the enmarket stores sold paper icons to collect donations for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). The grand total raised was $30,174.87.

This fundraiser was in support of LLS’s mission to cure blood cancer and help patients and their families. Blood cancers are cancers of the blood, bone marrow or lymph nodes that affect normal blood cell production or function. Nearly 1.3 million people in the United States are living with, or are in remission from, leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma.

“Every year, we come together as a company to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night event,” said Matt Clements, marketing director of enmarket. “We are so appreciative of our wonderful customers who supported the effort to raise funds again this year for this meaningful cause.”

Savannah’s Light The Night took place on Friday, October 13 in Daffin Park. During the event, participants carried different colored illuminated lanterns to signify if they are cancer patients or survivors, supporters or attending in memory of someone.

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Cinnamon Bear Stores, a family-owned group of high-end gift markets serving the Southeast for more than 20 years, has donated $1,040 to the MARNE Community and Spouses’ Club of Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield, a 501©3 non-profit, social and welfare organization that supports the military community through social outreach, academic scholarships and welfare grants.

The donation came from proceeds raised during the Cinnamon Bear Stores grand opening celebrations for their new location in the Twelve Oaks Shopping Center, 5500 Abercorn St.

The Cinnamon Bear offered an additional 15 percent discount during the grand opening to those with a valid military ID.

“This is huge for our group,” said Nina Elison, president of the Marne group. “The only way we can make a difference in this community is with the help of local businesses and our partners. Michael and Lynne have been very supportive of our mission, and we are most thankful that they chose to celebrate their grand opening by giving back to us.”

This is the first of a series of events planned by Cinnamon Bear to support the Marne Community and Spouses’ Club. The retailer also plans to launch a holiday writing contest for families of Marne.

During the past two decades, The Cinnamon Bear Stores have become a frequent stop for families vacationing along the Georgia, South Carolina and northern Florida coasts with locations at Harbour Town on Hilton Head, City Market and River Street in Savannah and at Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island.

Wellness company executive Ross Harding will present ‘The Golden Healers: A Study of Ginger and Turmeric’s Effect on Health’ on Tuesday, Aug. 22, during the 2017 enmarket Encourage Health Education Series.

Verdant Kitchen™ Co-Founder and CEO Ross Harding to Speak on the Healing Properties of Ginger and Turmeric During August 22 Encourage Health Education Lecture

(SAVANNAH, GA) Wellness company executive Ross Harding will present ‘The Golden Healers: A Study of Ginger and Turmeric’s Effect on Health’ on Tuesday, Aug. 22, during a lunchtime lecture presented as part of the 2017 enmarket Encourage Health Education Series.

The presentation will take place at the Savannah Morning News Auditorium, 1375 Chatham Parkway, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required, as a healthy lunch will be provided.

Harding, a longtime energy consultant and native of Australia, is the co-founder and CEO of Verdant Kitchen, a gourmet and wellness company that crafts artisan foods and beverages with a focus on the health benefits of the ginger and turmeric family of spices.

The company is the result of a collaboration between Harding and Savannah businessman Howard Morrison. It features products made of ginger and other foods including organic ingredients grown at Morrison’s historic Lebanon Plantation in Savannah.

Their effort was launched after they learned Savannah’s soil was perfect for growing ginger, which is a booming business in Harding’s native Australia. By mid 2013, Verdant Kitchen had developed a product line and, by early 2014, Harding was sampling the products in regional farmers markets.

Now, Verdant Kitchen’s ginger, galangal and turmeric are delivered to customers through a network of distributors, gourmet and wellness retailers, farmers’ markets and internet sales.

The Savannah Urban Garden Alliance (SUGA) has been selected to receive a $1,000 Encourage Health grant that will be presented during the Aug. 22 luncheon. SUGA is one of four local nonprofits selected to receive donations as part of the 2017 lecture series to recognize their efforts in promoting healthy homegrown food by developing gardens at local schools and educating students on basic gardening skills.

This is the fourth year enmarket has partnered with Healthy Savannah, Sandfly Family Dental, Gulfstream Aerospace Corp., Hoist Water, Savannah Morning News, Savannah Magazine and GPB Savannah – WSVH 91.1/WWIO 89.9 to host the Encourage Health Education Series.

The series features four lunchtime presentations from respected experts who share insights on nutrition and fitness plus general tips for healthy living.

Artist Jim Cone Donates $20,000 to The Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute

Artist Jim Cone Donates $20,000 to The Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute

(SAVANNAH, GA) Savannah artist Jim Cone has presented a $20,000 check to the Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute (ACI) at Memorial University Medical Center.

Cone donated 50 percent of his profits from his first public fine art exhibition, which was held at 24e Design Co. on Broughton Street featuring drawings, paintings, sculptures and mixed media pieces.

ACI provides cancer screening, diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, support services and long-term follow-up for cancer patients. Cone was diagnosed with throat cancer but has been found cancer-free after treatments at the ACI.

“Overcoming my recent battle with cancer gave me a second chance to explore my creative passion, so I wanted to use this new energy to give other cancer patients the same chance,” said Cone.

Cone, a retired Georgia Power employee, has been creating art for more than 40 years.

Ruel Joyner, owner of 24e Design Co., has known Cone for a number of years called Cone’s work a pure form of passion and said he was honored to showcase the work.

“Jim has painted for pleasure for over four decades. He started his artistic works in his spare time while working a full-time job at Georgia Power, and after his cancer, he really focused on his talents,” Joyner said. “Dr. Guy Petruzzelli and the professional staff at Memorial gave Cone a new lease on life and presented him with a new creative chapter in his life after cancer.”

At the exhibit, between 100 and 150 pieces were unveiled, including “Tybee Nudes” and “Street People.”

In his distinctive style, and with vibrant colors, Cone pushes cubism forward. Considered to be the first abstract style of modern art, Cubist artists try to piece together fragments from different vantage points into one painting. With the spirit of inclusion, one can see the incorporation of cubism in almost all of Cone’s artwork. The bold expression of color often separates and defines Cone’s cubist works from those cubist works by others like Picasso and Braque.

Jim Cone began painting in the mid-’70s and works mostly with oil on canvas, often embellishing each piece with found objects such as paper, wood and metal. Inspired by nature and artists Picasso, Braque, Matisse and Cezanne, Cone’s collection includes drawings, paintings, mixed media assemblages, sculptures and art sticks.
