For Coregistics, an Atlanta based packaging and supply chain services company, blood cancer is something that truly hit home. Lymphoma has directly affected a member of the Coregistics family and cancer continues to impact those they know and love outside of work. Interested in inspiring young people to join the marrow registry, Coregistics hosted a golf event to raise funds for Be The Match On Campus. “We want to support an entire generation of ‘do gooders’— potential marrow donors — who are focused on ensuring that every patient diagnosed with blood cancer can find a life-saving marrow donor,” says Coregistics CEO, Eric Willhelm.
Their Gears and Greens Golf Tournament included a round of golf, “ladies luncheon” boutique fashion show, raffle, silent auction, live auction and guest speaker. The guest speaker was 19-year-old Danielle who is searching for a marrow donor to save her life. Her compelling story touched the hearts of all 150 golfers, attendees and over 25 event sponsors. Coregistics’ generous support made it possible for 100% of the proceeds, $100,000, to go directly to supporting Be The Match On Campus.
Looking to the future, Coregistics has pledged ongoing support for Be The Match. They hope to grow their 2015 golf tournament and are offering their $100,000 this year as a national sponsorship and to match fundraising projects that chapters hold on their campuses. They have pledged their ongoing support for Be The Match and Be The Match On Campus. We are thankful for their dedication and commitment to saving lives.
