Philly Hates Cancer! Spread the word

September is national blood cancer awareness month and we're inviting the whole city to get involved! Please join The Dude for an awareness effort that we're calling "Philly Hates Cancer."

We are asking businesses if they can run a one-day promotion to donate a percentage of their sales to the cause, e.g., 10%, 20%, etc. Another option is a per-item donation, such as a $1 donation for gift box purchase, or for every XYZ beer sold, etc. Any day in September would work, and for any duration of time-- you could offer the promotion for a day, a week, or all month!

The more businesses get on board, the further this can spread. We are asking all businesses to use the #phillyhatescancer hashtag and a customizable Philly Hates Cancer logo to promote their participation.

In return, we will list all participating businesses and their offers on the website, post about them in our social media, and try to drum up some added press in the media. Participation can bring positive publicity, and hopefully some new customers, too! 

The goal is to get "Philly Hates Cancer" to become an annual city-wide event each year, leading up to The Dude Hates Cancer’s main event tournament (this year on Saturday 9/27)! You can select your participation level even if it's just 5% for a one-day promotion. As more businesses jump on board, collectively it could have a huge impact, both in raising awareness and funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society every year in September. All donations are 100% tax-deductible!

Three easy steps:

  1. Pick a September date
  2. Create a promotional offer or event  
  3. Hate cancer with us!

FACT: Every 3 minutes, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Your support will save lives.

TDHC Craft Market - Call for Artists!

We are in the process of organizing the very first TDHC Craft Market to be held during the main event bowling tournament on Saturday 9/27!

The TDHC Craft Market is being organized in collaboration with Nice Things Handmade and all vendors will offer a percentage donation back to the charity. Vendor list to be announced soon! If you are interested in vending, please email helen @ thedudehatescancer.com by September 10th.
