Kamo raises funds to fight cancer
The CSRA Light the Night Walk will begin at 5 p.m. Oct. 21 at Evans Towne Center Park in Evans – and one local business has helped lead the way in the annual event’s goal to fight cancer.
Kamo Manufacturing CEO Jack Weinstein has led a group of individuals since 2012 to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society with the annual Light the Night Walk. Named the Kamo Flushers, Weinstein’s team has raised more than $102,000 for Light the Night in the past five years. This year, the team received a $3,000 check from the Augusta West Rotary Club.
Supported by four events throughout the state, the Georgia Light the Night campaign has grown to more than $2 million though its fundraising efforts. Participation in the Augusta area is expected to be nearly 1,000 people, and to raise $220,000 this year.
