Biologics is proud to announce that several of its team members were recognized for their fundraising efforts at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s annual Light the Night Awards. These employees individually helped raise over $1,000 for the cause, earning them the Bright Light Award. Employees recognized include:
- Travis Jones, Patient Assistance Specialist
- Erica Sykut, Program Management Associate
- Susan Binger, Regional Practice Liaison
- Stacy Lundblad, Patient Benefits Specialist
In addition to earning the Bright Light Award, Jones was also recognized for the Shining Star Award. By meeting goals for fundraising, recruiting team members and hosting events, Jones was one of only two people in North Carolina to earn this designation in 2015. Of special note, this award came just days before Jones reached 20 years cancer free!
“As a childhood blood cancer survivor, supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is important to me because if it weren’t for the research and support this organization provides, I may not be here today. I feel a responsibility to give back to an organization that helped fund research that created the medications and procedures that gave me a second and third chance at life,” said Jones.
Biologics’ ECHO (Employees Caring and Helping Others) Program provides opportunities for team members to participate in fundraising and community service events. Supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for nine years, Biologics was one of the top five corporate fundraising teams in the Triangle area in 2015 and earned an Outstanding Fundraising Achievement Award.
“Philanthropy and community outreach have always been part of Biologics’ mission, and as our company grows it’s amazing to see the deep connection and engagement of our team towards this mission,” said Stuart Frantz, CEO at Biologics. “It’s an honor and privilege to work with people who care so deeply about serving others, both in their roles at Biologics and in the greater community.”
