An annual event for Nelson Mullins Encompass, several team members walked in and contributed financially to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) fundraiser, Light the Night, on Oct. 29 at the South Carolina State House. Exceeding last year’s donations, the Nelson Mullins team raised nearly $15,000 in support of LSS’s effort to fund research, find cures, and ensure access to treatments for patients with blood cancer. Though more participated with monetary donations, the following Encompass members participated in the walk: Julie Flaming, Lucie Cohen, Augusta Thompson, Julia Lanford, Cinthia Guzman, and Taylor Martin. Nelson Mullins was a sponsor of the event and the team was led by Cory Manning, who serves on the Light the Night executive committee.
