Raising Awareness and Support for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Posted by Deltek on September 7, 2021

Blood Cancer Awareness Month 2021

September Is Blood Cancer Awareness Month

Deltek and our employees rally around causes that matter – and one of those causes near and dear to us is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. Team Deltek is committed to LLS's efforts to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma – and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

Earlier this year, Team Deltek was presented with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Lifetime Achievement Award for our continuous support of LLS. "On behalf of Deltek’s employees, it is an honor to be recognized by LLS for our years of support with their organization and our involvement in Light the Night,” said Ed Hutner, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Deltek.

Throughout September, in recognition of Blood Cancer Awareness Month, we are expanding our support of this organization's important work. We look forward to having Deltek Project Nation join our philanthropic efforts by participating in our annual Light the Night walk; attending a special performance by actor, musician and LLS supporter Charles Esten; and helping LLS through G2 product reviews.

Light the Night With Team Deltek

Since 2014, Deltek employees have participated in numerous Light the Night walks, an annual LLS fundraising event that has resulted in Team Deltek raising more than $340,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

 “Cancer affects every one of us, in one way or another. The LLS organization has been so incredibly important because of the hope and support they provide to families going through the blood cancer journey. They are fighting hard to fund new treatments, find new therapies and are making remarkable strides on many fronts,” shared Jason Bagshaw, Sales Manager and avid LLS supporter.

This year is no different, Team Deltek is eager to kick off our seventh year of supporting Light the Night, which will be held in-person and virtually this October. If you are interested in donating to LLS or joining our team as we walk, please visit our Deltek fundraising page for more details.

A Concert & Conversation With Charles Esten

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will also be a big part of Virtual Deltek Insight, happening September 14 and 15. As part of this event we are pleased to announce a performance by Charles Esten during our customer appreciation session, Celebrate Insight! Best known for his roles on the NETFLIX global hit show Outer Banks and ABC/CMT’s Nashville, he has headlined multiple tours around the world and currently holds a Guinness World Record for releasing 54 original songs, one per week, for 54 consecutive weeks!

Esten has been a long-time LLS supporter and Light the Night Honorary Chair. Each year, Charles Esten leads Team Addie, who walks together as part of Light the Night, in honor of his daughter, who survived leukemia when she was 2 ½  years old − and has been cancer-free for more than 18 years. This year Deltek will be making a $10,000 donation to LLS to honor Team Addie as part of this exclusive concert and conversation with Charles.

Don’t miss your one chance to watch Esten perform a few of his favorite songs, exclusively for All-Access pass attendees of Deltek Insight 2021.

Unlock Your Support With a G2 Review

We are also excited to team up with G2 Gives in support of LLS. Through Insight, G2 – a trusted buyer discovery platform that publishes reviews on software and services – will donate $10 for every quality review Deltek customers leave about our project-based solutions. Deltek also will match each donation made through the G2 review site, with an additional $10 donation that will go directly to this important cause.

Please consider spending a few minutes of your time to leave a G2 review of our industry-leading products that will provide insight for industry peers as well as raise money for our #DeltekCares organization. Your product feedback helps enhance our user's experience and contributes to a meaningful effort. We encourage all of Deltek Project Nation to give a little time and get a lot out of helping put an end to blood cancer.
