LowcountryBizSC: Keaton Green named Runner-Up for LLS Lowcountry MWOY Campaign
Green and his team raise $237,274.00 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Keaton Green, vice president of Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, was named runner-up in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) 2020 Lowcountry Man and Woman of the Year competition on Saturday night.
The LLS Man & Woman of the Year (MWOY) campaign, which began on February 27, is a philanthropic competition for leaders in local communities across the U.S. The title “Man or Woman of the Year” is awarded to the candidate whose team raises the most funds for LLS in honor of local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year.
Green is one of nine candidates who participated this year. During the 15-week campaign, extended from the original 10-week campaign due to COVID-19, Green and his team raised a total of $237,274.00 for LLS. He was honored for his fundraising efforts during the Grand Finale Gala, which was held virtually on June 13. Collectively, this year’s Lowcountry MWOY candidates raised $875,906.57.
Green commented, “Each day it becomes more evident that cancer lives within our families and our society, and it seems we all know someone affected by cancer. Now that I’m a father, it’s even more heartbreaking to hear stories of children battling cancer. I’m proud to be part of a society that provides financial support and advocacy to families in need. I have grown passionate about the cause, but I did not do this alone. I had a strong team of individuals behind me who also believed in the mission.”
