Print Article

The Rock County Cancer Coalition (RCCC) has three upcoming fundraisers to help people in Rock County who are struggling with their bills as they fight cancer.

The coalition already has helped 873 clients and has dispensed around $735,000 since it formed in 2011, according to Bruce Thoms, president and co-founder of RCCC.

Thoms said there is still room to join the Great Upland Cancer Fundraiser following the shootout which is set for 4 p.m. on Feb. 23 at the American Legion Post 209 in Orfordville. There will be a band, food, raffles, silent and live auctions and more. Drawings start at 7 p.m.

On Feb. 24, the Sixth Annual Junction Pub fundraiser will be held at noon at Junction Pub, 130 Merchant Road, Milton. The fundraiser is held in honor of Brian Hergert who passed away from cancer. There will be a 50/50 raffle, basket raffle, silent auction, meat raffle and $1,000 raffle at 3 p.m.

On March 10 the Sixth Annual "All In" Against Cancer Poker Tournament will be held at Crosby Place, 120 N. Crosby Ave # 7, Janesville. Registration starts at noon, and card games start at 1 p.m.

The coalition helps cancer patients make rent payments, pay electric bills and also helps with prescription drug costs. Those who receive assistance must live in Rock County and be actively seeking treatment for cancer.

"We are giving away a lot of money and helping a lot of people," Thoms said.

The coalition hosts the Great Upland Cancer Shoot-Out each year and has a golf outing hosted by Hendricks Commercial Properties in August. Other businesses and organizations often pitch in and hold fundraisers for RCCC.

Those interested in mailing any donations to RCCC can do so at PO Box 2092, Janesville, WI, 53547. For more information visit www.rockcountycancercoalition.org.

Thoms said RCCC aways is accepting donations as well as raffle items for the fundraisers. Sponsorships are also available. For more information call RCCC at 608-754-2286.
