Team Fight With Your Smile Raises $92K for LLS
They sure fought with a smile! At a gala for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Student Visionaries of the Year on Tuesday, March 7, the winner was announced.
Team Fight With Your Smile, Rockaway’s local team spearheaded by Angelina LoBianco, raised a whopping $92,000 for the charity that helps kids like Broad Channel’s Rocco Pisani, through their battle with blood cancer. Team Fight With Your Smile’s effort put them in second place among all of the teams, which altogether, raised nearly $1 million for LLS.
Pisani served as Honored Hero for the campaign and was welcomed to give a motivational speech to the roughly 400 guests in attendance at the gala. Rocco shared his story about his ongoing battle. He has seven months left of treatment.
Kudos to all who worked hard to raise money and to the community for supporting the cause!
