O.K. Roswell it's time to take out those purses and wallets and donate to Pennies for Patients! And we when say Pennies we really mean BIG MONEY! We are trying to raise $40,000 this year and keep our place as #1 in the state of GA for fundraising for Leukemia and Lymphoma and in the top 10 in the country. So ask friends, family, and neighbors for donations. We take checks, large bills and online donations. Go to the Roswell website for a link to donate online. Be generous Roswell! Whoever said winning isn't everything, wasn't fighting cancer!
Help our effort to to fight leukemia and lymphoma by purchasing our fun merchandise -- t-shirts with this year's slogan "Whoever said winning isn't everything, wasn't fighting cancer," pop sockets, phone wallets, camo sunglasses, and koozies. Merchandise is on sale during all lunches at the concession stand. All money goes to our Pennies for Patients fundraising goal.
