Last night, the staff at Warner Music Nashville and Word Entertainment joined the thousands of survivors and families in downtown Nashville for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Light the Night Walk.” Teams of friends, families and co-workers participated in the annual fundraising event which is held in cities all across the United States in order to raise support for cancer research in the community. Last night’s walk kicked-off at LP Field and looped around the Cumberland River and ended with a firework celebration back outside the stadium.
Reprise Recording artist, Blake Shelton has been a long-time supporter for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and raised over $31,000 for the foundation at his annual fan club party earlier this year.
