In Savannah, it is a community coming together to help fight leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood cancers, through a Series of Premier Sporting Events; Clay Shoot, 5k Run/Walk, Golf, Fishing, Tennis, Sailing, Auction and more. Since the event's inception in 1997, more than $3.5 million has been raised through the Savannah effort for the mission of LLS.
