Enmarket team members presented the check to representatives of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at the Light the Night Walk held on Saturday, November 9.

For one month each year, the company’s 124 convenience stores in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina sell Light the Night paper balloon icons for $1 each. The proceeds are donated in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s mission to cure blood cancer and help patients and their families.

“Enmarket’s customers really came through this year, as we knew they would, showing compassion and extraordinary support for the work of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society,” said Brett Giesick, president of Enmarket. “We are thankful for each donation, and for the tireless efforts of our staff members to help us reach this year’s goal.”

Giesick also recognized the staff at Enmarket 845, led by manager Tom Nord, as the top fundraising store during this year’s campaign. Located in Beaufort, SC, the store contributed $5,187. This is the second year in a row that Nord and his staff have raised more money than any other Enmarket location.

“Private funding is so critical for us to continue our mission, and we are very grateful to Enmarket and its customers for their overwhelming support through the Light the Night program,” said Lauren Mathews, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Georgia Chapter’s Campaign Manager for Light The Night.

“Inspire Your Community” Podcast Supports The Bra Project

“Inspire Your Community” Podcast Supports The Bra Project

 

(SAVANNAH, GA, and BLUFFTON/BEAUFORT, SC) “Inspire Your Community,” a philanthropic podcast series launched by Chris Tilton of the Dewitt Tilton Group, will turn its spotlight and its $1,000 donation to The Bra Project this October in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 

DSC_7046 (1)

The Bra Project is sponsored by the Pinnacle Medical Group to benefit DragonBoat Beaufort and its mission to support area cancer survivors. This marks the fifth year in which The Bra Project has invited high school students to custom-design bras for submission in a traveling art show as part of a competition for best-designed bra. Art classes from Hilton Head, May River and Bluffton high schools participated in this year’s Project.

 

The student-designed bras have been featured in a tour of Beaufort County stores and healthcare facilities, including Pinnacle Plastic Surgery in Bluffton, throughout the month of October collecting votes from the public. The winner was announced at “Bras & Bubbly,” a finale event that also featured a silent auction of pieces donated by local artists with a breast cancer story of their own to share.

 

Tilton, one of two principals at the Dewitt Tilton Group commercial construction firm, launched his monthly “Inspire Your Community” podcast earlier this year to share true and inspiring stories of local efforts to improve the community. His hope is that such stories will inspire others to perform random acts of kindness or to be proactive about problem solving in the face of adversity. The Dewitt Tilton Group’s donations to help grow each featured cause have been a part of the podcast since its inception.

 

“The Bra Project operates on so many immensely beneficial levels,” said Tilton. “It raises money to support local cancer survivors and it gets young people involved in an important issue, all the while tackling a serious subject in a lighthearted and life-affirming way, which is just what we’re looking for with ‘Inspire Your Community.’

 

The “Inspire Your Community” podcast continues to look for uplifting and inspiring stories from our local community. To nominate a cause of your choice to be featured on the podcast and receive a donation from the Dewitt Tilton Group, email DTG.inspire@gmail.com.

 

This video podcast can be accessed on YouTube, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, Stitcher, and everywhere else podcasts can be found. For further information, contact the Dewitt Tilton Group team at DTG.inspire@gmail.com.

A local commercial construction firm, The Dewitt Tilton Group, also contributed $1,000 to the project.

“We’re always thrilled to host The Bra Project, and we’re thankful to be a part of such a dedicated community that cares about women’s health and breast cancer awareness as much as we do,” said Dr. Audrey Klenke, plastic surgeon and principal of Pinnacle Medical Group. “Thank you to all who attended Bras & Bubbly and a special thank you to the students and artists who came together to create a stellar event.
