Touch-A-Truck Blood Drive Fundraiser Event For Buddy Russ In Lake Charles
Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana we need YOUR help! The Junior League of Lake Charles has put together a great family-friendly event that’s fun for all ages on Saturday, April 1st, 2023.
We all know that Russ is battling bone cancer and is in the fight of his life. So many of you showed up for the Buddy Russ Benefit back on February 5th and we thank you for that. Now the Junior League is putting on this great event and dedicating it to Your Buddy Russ Conrad.
Lauren with the Junior League describe the event for us and said,
Russ needs us now more than ever. The Buddy Russ Day Benefit was a huge success, but the one thing Russ really wanted to have there was a LifeShare blood drive. Russ has received countless infusions since his diagnosis, and as we all know, he loves to give back. Even as he is battling cancer, he is still selfless beyond measure and wants to support the blood banks that are supporting him and we’re making it happen at Touch-A-Truck and dedicating one to him there!
What we here at Townsquare Media who work with Russ are thrilled about is this event and what is the awesome part about dedicating a blood drive is that Russ will get $15 per unit of blood donated that day which is from the financial contribution from LifeShare. This will help Russ and his family with the help he needs to keep his ongoing treatments and be able to pay for them.
So spread the word and bring everyone you know to come to show our buddy some love!! We will have LifeShare set up outside the entrance, so a ticket won’t be required to come to donate blood.
Lauren went on to tell us they have a fun day planned which will include,
