The GPCA Challenges Other Associations to Join the Fight to Cure Blood Cancer

The GPCA Challenges Other Associations to Join the Fight to Cure Blood Cancer

Valera Jessee, Executive Director of the Georgia Pest Control Association (GPCA) challenges other non-profit associations to come together in support of the Light The Night Walk. "The Light The Night Walk brings together members in a friendly competition and supports the communities from which we draw our livelihood", said Jessee.

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) relies heavily on funds raised through the GPCA. Since 2004, member companies of the GPCA have raised over $708,000. The goal this year is to raise another $100,000. What is unique about this partnership is that companies competing to eliminate your pest problem are joining forces for the common good.

Deal also paid tribute to members of the military that have served in the wars that have taken place since the attacks on New York and Washington.

Deal did not speak to reporters. Spokesman Brian Robinson said the state is taking increased security precautions due to the anniversary, but he said there has been no mention of Georgia as a potential target.
