WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Westchester Bank President and CEO John Tolomer served as the Chairperson for the recent “Light The Night Walk” in November to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The walk at Rye Playland raised funds for patient support services, advocacy for lifesaving treatments and cancer research.

Tolomer led a group of employees, their family members and friends from The Westchester Bank on the walk. Last year, the event raised $1.6 million in seven walks throughout New York and Connecticut. In the 16 years the event has been held nationwide, LLS has raised nearly $900 million.

Each “Light The Night Walk” honors local blood cancer survivors and commemorates individuals who have lost their lives to these diseases.

The Westchester Bank has been a key supporter of the event. Tolomer is a past Board Member of LLS. The event included food, family activities, entertainment, and a fireworks show. To learn more about LLS and "Light the Night Walks," visit www.lls.org
