Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s fundraising event to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Walkers carry illuminated paper lanterns – white for survivors, red for supporters, and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer, and it makes for a very inspiring evening. Over the course of two Saturdays, Light The Night Walks are orchestrated at five locations in NJ – Princeton, Morristown/Morris Plains, Camden/Sewell, Verona, and Red Bank/Long Branch.

Events with Ginger & Co. is the NJ event planner for the Walks involved in months of preparation each year, including booking and coordinating all vendors for site set-up, food and beverage and entertainment. Our NJ event planners are on-site at all five locations to manage the logistics of the events for a total of more than 10,000 attendees.

Ginger and her team are an extraordinary group of women to work with. They are hardworking, driven, and most importantly trustworthy. Since the beginning, Ginger has helped grow our walks and bring our vision to life. I would highly recommend choosing Events with Ginger & Co. for your next event!

Working with Ginger and her team was an extraordinarily positive experience for myself and my staff. Knowing that Ginger was taking care of all the logistical details, the vendors, and the volunteers freed my staff to work with their donors and participants. With Ginger’s strong attention to our needs, our budget, and the overall timeline, we never had to worry about a detail falling by the wayside. Ginger went above and beyond by demonstrating a strong understanding of our mission and building a rapport with our volunteers.

In today’s world we always hear the negative about someone or something. That isn’t true in this case. Amy is a pure gem and proved that repeatedly Saturday at the walk. From the moment I drove up until we left she was always there with a smile to help with whatever I asked her assistance with. Even when I was just walking around looking into each area to check if they had eaten or needed anything, if Amy saw me she would ask if we were ok or if she could help in any way. She single handedly got us into parking spots and made our deliveries an easy process. In this world where people sit back and watch others work, I commend her for her caring and efficient way. Thank you also for the guidance you gave her to know her job so well.
