Team Aims to Raise Double By Campaigns End
Allentown, PA: Lehigh Valley Steelhawks are excited to announce that they have pledged $25,000.00 towards General Manager Mike Clark’s Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Man of the Year Campaign which officially comes to an end on Thursday, June 7th. The team is planning a special check presenting ceremony on the field prior to the Steelhawks home contest this Saturday night against the Carolina Cobras.
The LLS Man and Woman of the Year Campaign is a 10-week fundraising campaign that spans across the nation to help find a cure for blood cancers. The Eastern PA Region of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society has 17 Men and Women competing for the 2018 title, but everyone wins when cancer loses and the Steelhawks are proud to put their support behind such a great organization.
“The LLS is near and dear to our heart, and we are proud to be able to use our platform to raise funds during this 2018 campaign,” stated Steelhawks General Manager Mike Clark. “Our Steelhawks family, joined by partners, friends, and supporters have been instrumental in this campaign as we close in on our goal to raise over $50,000.00 total during this ten-week period. We want to thank the entire Steelhawks nation for the support, especially our internal team of the entire Clark family, Chrissy Hixson, Shawn Meder, Skip Seda, Lauren Petri, Rob Storm and everyone else who has donated to the cause thus far. We are confident we are going to far exceed our goal come June 7th.”
In addition to the donation the Steelhawks, courtesy of a generous donation by PA Fire Recovery Service, will be wearing alternate Leukemia & Lymphoma Society jerseys this Saturday when the team hosts the Carolina Cobras. Throughout the game the team will be taking bids these specialty jerseys, followed by on on-field auction after the game, with ALL proceeds going towards the Man of the Year Campaign. Fans won’t want to miss on the opportunity to bid on these one-time only uniforms.
Steelhawks supporters can also join the team this evening for a celebrity bartending event at BRAVO! Italian Cucina at the Lehigh Valley Mall from 6-8pm. Partial proceeds from food and drink orders will also go towards Mike Clark’s Man of the Year campaign.
