NEW YORK -- This fall, the Pace University - Lenox Hill Hospital Physician Assistant Program recently set its all-time high for charitable giving by helping fight youth cancer in the New York Area

The school's Class of 2018, spearheaded by students Alyssia Johnson and Margaret Gerardi, succeeded in raising an astounding $19,547 through the 'Light the Night' event, which was held in Central Park this fall in cooperation with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

"It's an incredible accomplishment," said Professor Kate Kunstel, who coordinated the partnership between Pace and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. "It's something to be very proud of, and a wonderful representation of what our program and our students are all about."

This is the fourth year that Pace PA students worked alongside the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for the annual 'Light the Night' event. While Pace PAs have consistently been members of the $10K VIP Donor Club, this year's fundraising efforts exceeded all other previous years. 'Light the Night' is the first of many community events that Pace PA students have planned this year.
