More than 200 bowling fans came out to support CancerCare on October 16 at the 4th Annual “Strike Out Lung Cancer” bowling event hosted at East Meadow Lanes. The event raised more than $10,000 for the 8th Annual Lung Cancer Walk, which benefits CancerCare’s National Lung Cancer Program and its free support services.
The event was hosted by Kim & James Pellizzi along with Kim’s brother, Frankie, and her sister-in-law, Janet. Kim and James first came to CancerCare for support in 2004 after Kim’s mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. After she passed away in 2005, the Pellizzi family created “Strike Out Lung Cancer” to raise funds and support others the way CancerCare supported them. Together, the fundraising group is known as Team Butterflies.
Come support CancerCare and Team Butterflies on Sunday, November 7th at the Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course in Woodbury, NY for the annual Lung Cancer Walk. Visit www.cancercare.org/lungcancerwalk to learn more and to register for the Walk.
