DALLAS, June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Builders FirstSource, Inc. (: BLDR) (“Builders FirstSource” or the "Company"), the nation's premier supplier of building materials and services, today announced it raised more than $700,000 on behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (“LLS”) at its fifth annual corporate charity golf tournament. The event was held on June 15, 2022 at TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas and is one of several annual charity golf tournaments the Company hosts across the country to benefit LLS.
Builders FirstSource’s contribution to LLS aids the organization’s mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The Company has been a proud supporter of LLS for 16 years, raising over $6.5 million for the organization to date.
“We are honored to be able to use our national platform to help support LLS, an outstanding organization that is fiercely committed to the fight against cancer,” said Dave Flitman, President and CEO of Builders FirstSource. “We’re tremendously grateful to our suppliers and friends who sponsored this year’s event, marking the largest total we’ve raised in the golf tournament’s five-year history. The importance of the life-saving cancer research and patient programs LLS helps fund cannot be overstated, as we all know someone whose life has been touched by cancer.”
In addition to golf tournament fundraisers, the Company is actively involved with LLS’s Light The Night®, a series of events where blood cancer survivors and supporters join together in walks to raise funds for research, advocacy and patient service. Last year, nearly 2,000 Builder FirstSource team members participated in 50 Light the Night events in across the country, which helped the Company raise more than $1.2 million in 2021 for LLS.
“We’re grateful to Team Builders FirstSource and all those who stepped up to raise significant funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission,” said Coker Powell, SVP, Chief Development Officer for LLS. “At LLS, we believe cancer is curable, and with the continued help and generosity of Builders FirstSource and their partners, we can achieve our goal of a world without blood cancer. We thank all those who celebrated, honored and remembered those touched by cancer.”
