Washington D.C.-area CPA and advisory firm Bond Beebe raised more than $2,700 in its second year of participation with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk in Rockville, Md., Oct. 22.

A team of 40 employees participated in the annual fundraising event, which pays tribute and brings hope to people battling cancer and helps fund the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s research into the treatment of blood and other types of cancer.

“The energy and support of the walkers on the night of the event showed the impact our fundraising has on the lives of those affected by cancer,” said Emily Melton, an audit associate and the 2011 Bond Beebe Light the Night team co-captain. “It’s an exciting event that we look forward to supporting in the future.”
