BUSD Pennies for Patients

Bishop Schools raising funds for LLS

Bishop Unified School District is running a district wide “Pennies for Patients” campaign between March 2nd and March 20th . All proceeds will benefit the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. During this 3 week period they will have many activities to help raise money and awareness of Leukemia and Cancer and students of all ages will be collecting money throughout the community. Checks may be made payable to LLS-Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  On Friday, March 20th , the public is invited to attend the closing ceremonies at the “Shine on the Sierra Luminary Walk” on the BUHS track.  The evening will be filled with music, food and fun.  Registration is at 6:15 followed by the walk from 7:00-8:00.  Luminary bags, which you can decorate, will be available for a $5 donation.  All donations will benefit LLS and the Eastern Sierra Breast Cancer Alliance.  You may walk in honor or in memory of someone who has dealt with Leukemia or Cancer or you may just walk to show your support. There will also be a Bone Marrow Registry which is a simple mouth swab. You will be able to purchase, Lions Club Corn Dogs, NASA Indian Tacos, Face Painting by the BUHS Cheer Squad, Sweatshirts by HAPPY HOODS and Hot Beverages from Looney Bean.  Organizers are asking folks to come together as a community and get involved in this extremely important campaign, your gift could help save a life.

There is another way to participate, if you’d like to donate 8 inches or more of your hair to “Locks of Love” please contact Stephanie at Studio 27 for an appointment on Saturday, March 21st.

If you have any questions you may contact Kristin Carr at the BUSD District Office at 760-872-3680. We look forward to your support and participation.
