BENNINGTON, VT—January 30, 2020—The Cancer Center Community Crusaders (4Cs) received a donation from the Bennington Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliary #1861. The group held a steak dinner to raise funds in memory of Lindy Lynch, who was a member of the Eagles with her husband Kevin, who cooked for the event. The donation was raised by Lindy’s fellow Eagles as a way to continue the invaluable contributions she made to the 4Cs during her lifetime.

In its nearly 7-year existence, the 4Cs have raised more than $300,000 in funds to provide financial and emotional support to members of the community and their families as they strive to obtain the best cancer care and treatment possible.

All funds raised by the 4Cs stay in the communities of Bennington and Windham counties in Vermont and nearby New York and Massachusetts and benefit patients directly. Patients need not receive treatment at Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center to be eligible for funds.

For more information about becoming a sponsor of the 4Cs, contact Mary Morrissey at 802-379-5439.
