North Texas Chapter

Third Party Events

Third Party Events

Third Party Events raise thousands of dollars for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and its mission each year.  While these are not staff-run events, they are an instrumental part of raising awareness, outreach and funds in North Texas.

What is a Third Party Event?
A Third Party Event is put on by volunteers who are interested in utilizing their time, talents and personal connections to raise money on behalf of LLS.  A Third Party Event can be anything from hosting a bowling tournament, a happy hour, a fundraiser at your place of employment, and everything in between.

The organizer is responsible for all recruitment and publicity of the event as well as taking care of all expenses and income generated in connection to the event.  LLS will not pay for any expenses incurred during the event and must have a signed Third Party agreement from the organizer before the start of the event.  It is the responsibility of the event organizer to submit all funds raised in a timely manner. 

What Do I Need for Third Party Event?
Your needs may vary depending on the size and complexity of your Third Party Event.  LLS suggests that you do the following when creating your event:

  • Reach out to an LLS staff member to discuss your event and how the North Texas Chapter can assist
  • Fill out and return a Third Party Event agreement
  • An accounting system in place for event day to ensure that all donations are handled properly
  • Information about LLS and its resources available for participants

What Resources Will LLS Provide?
The North Texas Chapter wants your Third Party Event to be a success and is willing to work with you ahead of the event.  Resources LLS can provide depend on a number of factors, including availability of staff and resources.  (This is not a complete list.)

  • Print material about LLS to display at your event (banners, brochures, etc.)
  • A staff person to serve as a reference during the planning of your event
  • Assistance in promoting your event on the North Texas LLS Facebook and Twitter pages

A Third Party Event agreement can be found here and filled out at your convenience.  If you would like to host an event on behalf of LLS, please contact Libby Kaczmarek at or (972) 996-5928.
