Bannes Contributes Over $5,000 to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients Program

The Pennies for Patients program is part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s fundraising efforts and offers students the chance to help children with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma by collecting spare change. With the support of our very generous Bannes families, this year's Student Council drive raised an impressive $5088.97.

Mrs. Laricy's classroom won an Olive Garden catered lunch and because students reached their all-school fundraising goal, Mr. Callaghan wore a shark onesie, was duct tapped to the wall, AND took a pie in the face from the student who raised the most money.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.
