Lung Cancer Fight Fundraiser Effort

The John Atkinson Lung Cancer Foundation will host the 4th annual Rock to Raise fundraiser on November 17th to raise money for scholarships for students who lost a parent to lung cancer and help start a new student empowerment program.

WHERE: St. Nicholas Community Center, 5050 Harrison Street, Omaha

WHEN: Saturday, November 17, 2012 7:00 p.m.

Rock to the sounds of The Personics band, enjoy appetizers, cocktails, and a silent auction. John Atkinson was an Omaha man and nonsmoker who lost his battle with lung cancer in June 2009. The foundation will hold a fundraiser to carry out John’s legacy and provide scholarships to children who have lost a parent to lung cancer.

As always, the proceeds from this event will provide scholarships to children who’ve lost a parent to lung cancer. In addition, the event will help start our new student empowerment program with a Washington DC based partner, Lung Cancer Alliance. This new empowerment program will teach our scholarship winners how one person really can make a difference while they represent their lost parent to their Senator or Congressperson on Capitol Hill.
