Tailgate raises funds to fight cancer

This is the third year for the Moose Lodge’s “Tailgate for Cancer.” This is the third year for the Moose Lodge’s “Tailgate for Cancer.”

The Lima Moose Lodge rooted for a Buckeye’s victory and raised money to beat cancer at the same time. 

This is the third year for the Moose Lodge’s “Tailgate for Cancer.”  The daylong event was full of tailgate staples, like corn hole, wings and ribs and of course football.  The event was started after one of the organizers had a family member that was stricken with brain cancer, and since then the Moose Lodge sees the impact their dollars can make with people battling the disease. 

Connie Stimmel from Lima Moose Lodge said, “Cancer touches almost everybody in some way, whether a caregiver, or it happens to themselves or a friend.  I think it’s important to raise money for research and we raise money to help people, in particular, with their own financial stresses with cancer.”

The proceeds from the tailgate will benefit CHP Hospice in Allen County, The James Cancer Hospital in Columbus, the Moose Lodge, and other local charities.
