Campaigning for a cause

DALLAS/FORT WORTH - After being nominated for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Man of the Year, Michael Schultz, whom you may know from Capital Pumping and being listed as a Top 25 realtor in the San Antonio Business Journal, is on the campaign trail to raise money for this great cause.

    Introduced to the LLS two years ago, Schultz has spent time with many people who have been personally affected by these and other blood cancers, and his campaign will be raising money through several events through Jun. 6 to fight leukemia and lymphoma and find cures for them.
    The first event, the Clays for a Cure Shoot, was held Apr. 13 at the San Antonio Gun Club. The event drew 108 shooters and included a dinner; a live auction that included a fishing trip, Spurs games, rounds of golf; three gun raffles; and an awards presentation.
    “It was an awesome turn out,” says Schultz. “I just want to thank everyone who sponsored me today, everyone who came out and showed support and love for this great cause, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This is an awesome thing, and I couldn’t do it without everybody who came here today.”
    Schultz says that the next events he is organizing for his fundraising campaign include a fashion show and a big grand finale event. If he raises more than $150,000, he will go to the LLS National Gala in New York and receive a dedicated research grant in his name. –mh
