Recap of the 2014 Tigerfight Casino Night

The 2014 Tigerfight Casino Night was a huge success. It was a night of great food, fantastic music, amazing silent auction items and lively casino games that made our casino night the place to be. More importantly we raised over $55,000 which will go to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and their mission to help blood cancer patients live better, longer lives. It will also go to fund lifesaving blood cancer research and provide free critical information and support services to patients and families. We are blessed to have great sponsors and a supportive community that will stand behind an event like this. We also enjoyed seeing old friends and meeting new ones. It was by far our best event to date and we are looking forward to many more to come. Check out our Gallery to see pictures from the event. Thank you, Tigerfight Committee

Tiger Chews Going National

Dewar's Candies is teaming up with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to take Tiger Chews national. A Tiger Chew is a Orange Cream flavored taffy that tastes like a 50/50 bar. Dewar's created the Tiger Chew in December 2012 to benefit  the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through Team Tigerfight. To date Dewar's has produced 2000 pounds of Tiger Chews. By August 2013, 68 of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Chapters throughout the United States and Canada will have the opportunity to purchase and sell Tiger Chews, with proceeds of each pound going directly to their chapter.
