"Austaco Ltd, a franchisee of Taco Bell, is proud to announce this year's fundraising efforts raised a quarter of a million dollars for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Central Texas (LLS). As the Title Sponsor of the LLS Light the Night Walk, Austaco raised funds by selling paper balloons in their Taco Bell locations and through corporate giving.

Taco Bell (Austaco Ltd) celebrated a recent eight week fundraising effort by presenting a check for $250,000 during this year's Light the Night Walk, held at the Mueller Development in Austin, Texas on October 16th. The walk began at 7:30 pm after participants picked up their illuminated balloons: white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer.

Twenty five hundred walkers joined in the festivities raising nearly $500,000 for the Light the Night Walk; funds will contribute to lifesaving blood cancer research, financial assistance to cover patient expenses, free educational materials and events for patients and their families and local programs geared towards saving the lives of people with blood cancer."
