Barry D. Blanton is the recipient of the The Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s first annual Volunteer of the Year Award. Blanton was chosen for his volunteer leadership and his dedication to the Chapter’s Light The Night Montgomery County Walk campaign, which has raised over $1.65 million in the seven years since its inception.
The event has grown from raising $30,000 in 2005 to more than $420,000 in 2011. During that time, Blanton has served in various capacities including Corporate Walk chairman, Executive Committee chairman, and Event Committee chairman while also acting as team captain of The Blanton Bunch, one of the event’s top fundraising teams.
“It is only because of volunteers like Barry that we are able to reach fundraising goals and provide much-needed money to research and patient aid,” said Billie Sue Parris, executive director. We are lucky and blessed to have strong leadership in the Houston area, but even more importantly in our outlying markets such as Montgomery County, where we rely heavily on volunteers for sponsorship and connections. This award is our highest honor and we cannot imagine anyone more deserving.”
