This Childhood Cancer Awareness Night will be held during the Bulls home game versus the Syracuse Chiefs on 8/8. The Bulls players and coaches will wear special jerseys during the game which will be autographed and auctioned off along with other sports and music memorabilia. The silent auction will be held during the game and will continue online for the following week. Children with cancer will take part in the Field of Dreams team where they will go onto the field with the players during the National Anthem. Community organizations serving children with cancer will participate and we giving away free awareness materials. Organizations such as The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; St. Baldricks Foundation; Strike 3 Foundation; Bounceback Kids and the Ronald McDonald House of Durham are all slated to participate. Immediately following the game, a fireworks show will begin as well as a lighting of luminaria in the infield known as the Field of Memories. This will honor and remember children afflicted with cancer. To purchase a luminaria bag, contact Ashley Voss (firstname.lastname@example.org).
