The Dude Hates Cancer 2018 Results: We Have Wonderful News

THANK YOU to everyone who made The Dude 2018 so great! IMG_3067Everyone who clicked a link, donated a dollar, or gave a minute is a part of this year’s success.

Thanks to your efforts, we have raised over $55,500 so far – and counting! We expect to hit our $60,000 goal by the time the final numbers come in, which would make it $10,000 MORE THAN LAST YEAR. See below for the results of the bowling and fundraising competition.

Every dollar raised goes to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to further their mission: to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Because of your support, we are able to continue to fund these initiatives right here in Eastern Pennsylvania. The credit goes to our fantastic teams for the fundraising dedication.

Congratulations and Take ‘er easy’s to all of our winners and to everyone who knocked down a pin!
