FLOWER MOUND, Texas (Jan. 6, 2012)—For the second year in a row, the North Texas Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has chosen Ivie & Associates to serve as honorary chair for its fourth annual fundraiser the Big D Climb. The fundraiser, which supports blood cancer research, is a 52-story climb to the top of Fountain Place in Dallas, Texas and will take place on Saturday, January 28, 2012. This is the third year Ivie has had a presence at the Big D Climb.
“We are honored to be a part of the Big D Climb and believe in the importance of fundraising for this special cause,” said Warren Ivie, CEO and Founder of Ivie & Associates. “The Big D Climb is a great event, and we feel privileged to be chosen as honorary chair for a second year.”
“We couldn’t be happier about Ivie’s continued participation as honorary chair,” said Stacey Russell, Deputy Executive Director at the LLS. “This year’s Big D Climb is going to be the biggest and most successful one yet, and we look forward to Ivie’s future involvement as the Climb continues to grow.”
In 2011, nearly 150 Ivie associates and friends participated in the 1,040-stair climb. The event raised over $90,000 for the cause. Ivie is also hosting its second annual event Rock for The Climb, an employee-driven talent show that raises further funds for the LLS, on January 14, 2012.
