Sept. 23: Light the Night to Defeat Cancer (Faculty & Staff)

We have teamed up with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help “Light the Night” by contributing to their goal to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life for local patients and their families. For a $5 contribution, you can wear jeans on Friday, Sept. 23, and for a $10 contribution, you are entered in a drawing for a wireless and sleep activity sports watch. We hope to raise $1,000 to make a difference.
