Ascend Federal Credit Union, the largest federal credit union in Middle Tennessee, announced today it has donated $10,000 to the Tennessee Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to support Light The Night. Credit union employees and members also contributed an additional $3,508. The donations help fund cancer research and provide support services to cancer patients and their families.

In addition to the Light The Night corporate donation, this Halloween employees at Ascend locations throughout Middle Tennessee participated in the LLS annual fundraiser “Costumed for a Cure,” dressing up in their most creative costumes and decorating pumpkins.  “Costumed for a Cure” raised $3,508 from employee and member donations, bringing the 16-year total for Costumed for a Cure to $45,179.

The funds raised through Light The Night support LLS’s mission priorities: research, education and support, and policy and advocacy. Through campaigns like Light The Night, LLS has invested more than $1.5 billion since its inception in research to advance breakthrough therapies.
