Rotelli To Host Leukemia Benefit Dinner

Rotelli will be hosting a pizza and pasta dinner supporting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society(LLS) on Sunday, March 28 from 5-7 p.m. Ten percent of each dinner purchased will be donated to this society through “Team in Training”, a team racing in the New Jersey Marathon that is also sponsored by the LLS. This team has been around for 21 years and has raised over $1 billion for the LLS.

LLS was founded in 1949 as The de Villiers Foundation and is almost 1 million volunteers strong. These volunteers are helping to combat all forms of blood cancer. It is a tough fight, as 9.5 percent of the 1.5 million new cases of cancer each year consist of lymphoma, leukemia, and myeloma.

The event is being hosted by Bill Brinkman, a senior majoring in Security and Risk Analysis. His mother was diagnosed with stage 2 non-Hodgkins lymphoma, which has inspired him to make a difference here at Penn State.

For those interested in attending, a flyer must be presented at the dinner, which is conveniently situated next to this post!
