Carnival Against Cancer to Help Ill Children


Contact: Mary Hackett

STAC Students Raise Money  For The Sick 
With Carnival Against Cancer

          Project Ladybug is a children’s charity fund going towards those with rare blood diseases or cancer patients at St. Joseph’s Hospital. On Friday, April 20th St. Thomas Aquinas College as well as other Rockland County colleges will be hosting their first annual Carnival for Cancer.   
          All proceeds for this fund will be directly going to St. Joseph’s Hospital to help young cancer patients. Project Ladybug sends the funds to help sick children to promote them to get better with things such as “wish trips” or to purchase art supplies and toys during the holidays to keep them happy.
          A student, Kristina Simon, attending St. Thomas Aquinas College was asked to be the committee chair person at the event because she had raised a grand total of $780 through the Relay For Life  in memory of her mother, who died from lung cancer.
          No matter how big or how small of a donation people make, every bit counts. So come enjoy the carnival and feel great for being a part of donating to such a great cause.
