HARD ROCK CAFE LAS VEGAS PARTNERS WITH CONKERR CANCER’S LOCAL CHAPTER FOR THE CHARITY’S “MILES OF PILLOWCASE SMILES” CAMPAIGN

 

Hard Rock Staff and volunteers will help create rock ‘n’ roll inspired pillowcases for local teens battling cancer or other life changing illnesses on Tuesday, September 16

 

For the 5th consecutive year, Hard Rock Cafe is partnering with ConKerr Cancer to help bring smiles to the faces of teens across the valley that are currently receiving treatment for cancer and other life changing diseases. On September 16, 2014,from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Hard Rock Cafe and ConKerr Cancer volunteers will spend the day creating pillowcases to help contribute to the Miles of Pillowcase Smiles national campaign of creating more than 44,000 pillowcases (20 miles) during the month of September, each one representing a child currently in treatment.

 

The mission of ConKerr Cancer (http://www.conkerrcancer.org/) is to provide a bright, cheery pillowcase to all youngsters who are in treatment for cancer or dealing with any other serious medical issues. The young patients get to choose a case, use it in the hospital and bring it home after treatment. Each visit to the hospital warrants a new case. These cases not only brighten up the sterile hospital room, but also are a reminder to the family that someone is thinking of them and wishing them well.

 

The public is invited to join the event and help by donating their time to the cause. Pillowcase materials will be provided but additional material donations would be appreciated as well.
