Fundraise

Organize Your Own Fundraising Event 

Without help from the community, Our Clubhouse would not be able to help as many people touched by cancer. That's why fundraisers in the community are so important! 

Whether your event idea is big or small, you can raise money for our friends who have been touched by cancer, and every dollar you raise stays in western Pennsylvania.

You can set-up your page for us on one of these sites:
