SCRANTON, Pa. – Oct. 29, 2021 – Lackawanna College is hosting a fundraising dinner that will benefit families who have children with cancer.

The Pinkies Up dinner is slated for November 12 at Lackawanna College’s student-run restaurant, 409 on Adams. Proceeds will benefit the Pinky Swear Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps families with a child in cancer treatment with financial and emotional support.

“The emotional and financial toll that this disease can have on a family is devastating,” said Stephanie McDaniels, faculty advisor for the Lackawanna College Pinky Swear chapter. “We are honored to coordinate this event to support Pinky Swear. The funds raised help families with rent or mortgage payments, groceries, transportation, and other expenses, which helps children with cancer and their families maintain a sense of normality.”

Event tickets will be $50 and will include a buffet-style dinner from The High Bridge House and 15 raffle tickets. Raffle prizes include a two-night stay to Resorts Atlantic City with $100 lunch or dinner credit, a one-night stay to The French Manor and wine tasting at Blue Ridge Estate Vineyard & Winery, and various themed baskets.

Tickets for the Pinkies Up dinner are available now online. Raffle tickets can be purchased separately from the event online. For questions, contact Stephanie McDaniels by email at mcdanielss@lackawanna.edu.
