Soccer Team Donates to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

The McDowell Boys Soccer team gives a large donation to a good cause.

Tonight... The team presented a check for 16 hundred dollars to the leukemia and lymphoma society. This is a tradition for the team.  Each year, the McDowell Boys Soccer Boosters host a philanthropic game. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to a charity of their choice. They chose LLS not only because every three minutes someone is diagnosed but also because one of the seniors on the team lost his father to leukemia.


"Something like this helps us with copay assistance to help patients in the area as well as life saving research, " said Brenda Bidwell, Campaign Manager for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The money was raised through ticket sales, raffles, chinese lantern sales, a bake sale and more.
