Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

February 11, 2019 - The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) - Savannah, GA recently announced that Will Gruver will represent Savannah as an All Star Alumni Candidate in the annual Man & Woman of the Year campaign. The ten-week fundraising competition will begin on Feb. 21, 2019 and run through May 3, 2019. The 2018 Savannah campaign raised nearly $500,000 and nationally the campaign raised $59.4 million for the mission of LLS.

As a native of Savannah, Will, a Field Services Specialist for Jan-Pro of the SC/GA Coast, sees this as a great opportunity to get his community, state, and national contacts involved in the fight to cure blood cancers. Will initially ran as a Candidate in the spring of 2014. Since that time, he has been heavily involved with the campaign and served as the event’s co-chair in 2018. 

He is excited to have a greater impact this spring as he continues to raise awareness and dollars. When asked to sum up his drive to raise fundraise again, Will said, “I wanted a chance to build upon my previous success and do even more than I could before.”

While the campaign will kick-off on Thursday, Feb. 21 at the Charles H. Morris Center, Will is planning an additional kick-off event on Friday, Feb. 22 from 5 – 9 p.m. at Service Brewing located at 547 Indian Street in Savannah.

Join All-Star Will Gruver and his team, ‘Getting the Band Back Together’, for his kick-off celebration. Grab a beer, make a donation, participate in their 50/50 drawing, and enjoy a night at Bluegrass by the Pint with City Hotel as they kick off this 10-week tour.

According to Jennie Brewster, LLS’s Area Director for Savannah and Augusta, “it takes a very special person to volunteer to take on this campaign twice! We are grateful to Will for dedicating his time and talent to achieve our mission.”
